“The Harmonica workshops led by Mat Walklate were really enjoyable. I found them accessible even as someone with no musical background. The Mat is friendly and supportive and I feel I have learnt a lot even if I'm no Larry Adler yet.”

Mark, Beginners Class

“"The Harmonica Workshops provided by Mat Walklate are worth every penny of the course fee. Mat is an exceptional tutor and has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the blues and blues harmonica. He has an easy manner and quick wit which help to make you feel comfortable regardless of the level you are at. If you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced, these are the workshops for you." ”

Paul, Advanced class
