HarrMonika posesses a rare combination of a musical skill set with a technical skill set. "I could not afford to record in commercial studios nor I could I afford to pay pro musician fees and so I realized early on that I would have to learn both sides of the studio to include the basics of musicianship; rythym melody intonation harmony percussion and the technical aspects of recording in a digital environment. I learned a lot taking tutorials from literally teenagers and industry professionals on youtube and educational materials offered by the top musical instruments and software manufactuers ."
Apple's Logic Pro and Garageband virtually changed HarrMonika's life and career offering everything from Steinway pianos to a full array of Fender
Guitars and virtually every orchestra instrument and sound in between. HarrMonika Musik Has Been Traveling Through Sound and Vibration Since
