G'day everyone :) new at the harp, no other musical back ground so can only play by ear, I make noise not music at this stage but hope to learn heaps and gain experience from the forum & members so I can confidently jam with others over a few beers and around the fire.

I'm 52 yo bloke, a paramedic in Newcastle New South Wales (eastern state 0f oz) just 2 hour north of Sydney.
cheers :)
Wil

Hi Wil and welcome.

As paulbunyn said, there are a few Aussies floating through this part of the net.
There used to be a pretty active harmonica club in Newcastle, but I haven’t heard anything from them in a while. But there is no shortage of both free and paid instructional/feedback sites for harmonica on the web (including this one – make sure you have a good look around this site). I still like personal instruction from a good teacher, but such folk are a bit hard to come by around Canberra.

Despite that, I’m going to a workshop here next month put on by DJ Gosper (a Canberra local) and Big Blind Ray (from Sydney) and then the next weekend I’m off to Sydney for a Howard Levy concert (Sat night) and workshop (Sun). Given Howard “is acknowledged as the world’s most advanced harmonica player! He is also a superb pianist, innovative composer, recording artist, bandleader, teacher and producer. Winner of 2 Grammy Awards!” it should be pretty good. Not sure if it is for beginners though. (see http://www.kurtjacob.com.au/ for details)

Cheers
Maka
