Mel Biggs is a musician, performer and melodeon teacher based in Derbyshire, England.

Renowned the world over for her perceptive, patient and mindful manner in teaching groups and individuals, Mel is a leading light in the world of melodeon teaching; both on and off-line.

Having been teaching since 2009, Mel has an ever expanding toolkit of techniques at her disposal which she adapts to every new teaching scenario. You can expect a bespoke blend of learning-by-ear, call and response playing, analogies, visualisations and pattern recognition, tune deconstruction and notation in moderation.

Mel is a consummate performer, vocalist and accompanist and can be seen on stage as one third of Anglo-European trio Moirai and playing for the vibrant Harlequin Morris.

A keen visual artist and photographer, Mel designs the imagery, artwork and publicity material for Moirai and has worked with the Stroke Association UK providing therapeutic ‘free drawing‘ art workshops for stroke survivors.

Please contact Mel if you have a musical, artistic or teaching project in mind that you would like to work on together.
