I teach the English concertina one-to-one over Zoom - please contact me for further details.  I have a growing bank of sheet music, exercises and recordings that I send out in conjunction with the lessons.  

I've got two workshops on Zoom coming up in the new year - full details below.  I'm also planning an online masterclass workshop soon - details to follow.

A 1h45m workshop, originally delivered live on Zoom, where I discuss and demonstrate the thought process and techniques I use in creating a solo setting of a traditional or self-composed tune - including articulation, use of the bellows, and most importantly harmony. Focusing on two tunes, one traditional and one self-composed, I use both treble and tenor-treble concertinas, and answer questions from the workshop participants. You'll also get an MP3 of my tune Mill Lane, as recorded on Meanders, which is one of the tunes I discuss in the workshop.

You'll receive a private YouTube link so you can watch the video as many times as you like and I'm planning to leave it there indefinitely.
