It far exceeded my expectations and Yellow Pine was a great place to visit!  I hope to be back next year!   Suzanne T.

Thank you very much for organizing and putting together a great harmonica workshop!   I got a ton out of the workshop and plan to keep practicing and adding to my repertoire.  I had a great time and are looking forward to my next visit.
