What people are saying about the full course

– Andy Cutting (Blowzabella, Leveret, Topette!)

I thoroughly recommend this course. Mel is a fine teacher, personable, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The pace of the lessons are great

– Helen Renton (Pick Up & Play graduate)

An ideal introduction to the melodeon. Mel has a warm, friendly and encouraging teaching style. Filmed with care, the demonstrations are easy to follow and play along with. Once you reach the end of the course you are invited to send Mel a short video of your playing so that she can provide feedback, which she does in a very thorough and helpful manner.

I look forward to welcoming you onto the full course soon!
