How it works
IMPORTANT: Make sure to tick the box at checkout to receive emails from me when you enrol on this block of classes.
This triggers an automated email directing you to ‘The Melodeon Zone’ – your personal learning space here on my website.
This is where class recordings, handouts and any other relevant materials will be posted after each live class.
You can access The Zone 24/7, 365 days a year from wherever you are in the world – as long as you have internet access!
Are the blocks of classes progressive?
No – previous participation is not required in order to sign up to a current block. Blocks are standalone.
Each block revolves around a core tune which, once taught, becomes a template for exploring techniques, rhythm, exercises etc.
Each ability level focuses on the different aspects of playing melodeon at an appropriate level of challenge suitable for each group.
How long will I have access to ‘The Melodeon Zone’ for?
You have lifetime access to the materials relevant to the block(s) you purchase via your user account.
