Pat Hannak

Born in 1965 in France, Pat HANNAK very quickly taught himself to play the guitar and harmonica.

At the age of 18, after only four months of harmonica practice, the impetuousness of youth and his growing passion for the small instrument allowed him to share an unforgettable moment on stage with the greatest French rock band TELEPHONE.

This magical moment reinforced his desire to become involved professionally in the music world, and in the following years he played in various formations, developing his own style, largely influenced by the American legends of the Blues Harmonica: Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson, Sonny Terry, James Cotton, Charlie Musselwhite, Gary Primich... but Patrick was also very attracted by the music and the playing of his friends and WONDERFUL French harp players Jean-Jacques Milteau, Michel Herblin, Vincent Bucher ...

He has taught guitar and harmonica for over 20 years in Lorraine (France). Between 1997 and 2003 he gave workshops as an assistant to Jean-Jacques Milteau and Greg Zlap.

He is recognised as a passionate and experienced educator. To date more than 2000 students have profited from his musical experience and modern teaching methods, including the international students he currently teaches over the internet via Skype. Patrick is a singer-songwriter with a wealth of experience with other top musicians.

These days he presents his harmonious compositions for harmonica and guitar by playing both simultaneously - a new "rack harmonica player" who has not finished talking! Patrick loves playing the 1847 CLASSIC and NOBLE, which has the best sound he has ever heard!

Pat also has an interesting >harmonica blog
