Harmonica Ujjayi.

Three summers ago, whilst living in Southern Utah (one of the most breathtaking landscapes in this country),  I decided to teach myself how to play the harmonica.  I learned ‘Happy Birthday’  and ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ and would hike up into the canyons by myself to meditate, worry about being killed by a bear, and blow on my harp.

Since that summer I have stopped playing harmonica, but my boyfriend gifted me harmonica lessons at Old Town School of Music for my birthday.  I am drawn to the harmonica because of the incorporation of breath and it’s simplicity.  Plus, I love the blues, Bob Dylan, Mazzy Star…I mean let’s face it: the harmonica is dead sexy.
