Welcome to Pick Up & Play with Mel Biggs: Let’s Get Started! Let Mel guide you through the basics towards learning your very first tune. Start by finding out what your instrument is and how it works, then go on to learn about basses, chords and rhythm before learning to play a simple traditional English dance tune with both hands together.

Each of the 65 video lessons demonstrate one concept simplified into a bite-sized piece of information that you’ll be able to pick up really easily by ear.  Mel will guide you expertly over the humps so you’ll be playing your very first tune in no time!

    1. Hi James! When you sign up, you’ll have 6 months to complete the course which I believe is ample time to achieve the goal of this course – learning your first tune with both hands together! What with other life commitments, I know how hard it is for a lot of people to find time to practise! With this online course, you can complete it in your own time! And if you need a top up month at the end of the course, you can pay just for that! Simples.
