|What is your playing level?|

|What is your musical background?|
Studied accordion as a teenager and performed at the Worlds Fair in Osaka, Japan. I transitioned to Hammond organ and played rock music professionally for a few years. Later in life I performed blues, soul, and R&B music on and off for about 20 years during a 40-year period (mostly on Hammond organ). In that time frame, I also composed, produced, and recorded many original songs, playing all the parts utilizing a MIDI recording studio. I started studying and playing the melodica as a main instrument in late 2013.
|What melodicas do you play?|
Vintage Hohner melodicas: HM-26, HM-27, and HM-32
|Anything to add?|
My goal is to have fun and explore how to make the keyboard harmonica more expressive.
