Fancy a THREEBIE? FREE Online Melodeon Classes

Looking for some new inspiration and motivation for you and your melodeon?

Have you seen that I now offer Online Melodeon Classes?

How they work…

I run classes in blocks of 3x 1hr sessions live via Zoom. Classes are recorded and uploaded to a space on my website called ‘The Melodeon Zone’ along with any accompanying handouts or sheet music.

The classes function as easily as Pick Up & Play with instant access to content as soon as you sign up and login to your user account.

Too busy for melodeon practice? I’ve designed them specifically to fit in easily with a hectic work/life schedule:

Jump to it!
Navigate to specific sections of video classes easily via handy time-stamped chapters.

Available when you are!
When a live block of classes ends, it becomes available to buy on demand, meaning they are available 24/7/365, wherever you are in the world.

Take it at your own pace!
All on demand classes come with lifetime access so there’s no time limit to complete them.
