What do I need to do to get to the next level? Does my tone suck? How do I create unique turnarounds? It all basically depends on where you are as a player as to what questions you ask. I have been schooled by David Barrett for many years and how it worked for me was I play, he say. The way to IMO get your moneys worth is to simply play a song or to a jam track and let them evaluate your playing. from there all your questions should be answered until your next meeting. I hope this helps. I really love it when a harp player seeks help. It helps us all in the long run. Here are some questions I have asked and the answers to them .

How long before I can REALY Play the harp? 20yrs

How much practice should I do to reach the 20 yr goal? 3 hours a day

How can I learn a song quicker? Transcribe every note yourself

How can I make the band let me play more? Learn to sing and lead


keep it in your mouth

I'd ask to listen to me, my recoded performance and show me my mistakes. And give me the main way to get better.

Well, after being told my tone was decent, I asked for instruction on how to get precise separation on the 3 hole draw bends and how to get contol on the blow bends.

Any skilled musician can help you understand WHAT to play. You don't need a harmonica pro for that.
