    I'm leading 3x 1.5 hour INTERMEDIATE melodeon workshops. It’s time to level up! Each day we'll look at a 'tune with a technique'. Discover tunes from Norway, France and Mel’s own repertoire that will really give you something to get your teeth into and wrap your brain around. (Participants should have a good grasp of their instrument and be able to play with both hands.)
