Over the course of four ~1 hour video tutorials, you’ll learn:
- The melody and left hand chords for ‘Midsommerschottish’ by Clara Tesch of Floating Sofa Quartet.
- How to dance a Schottishe
- How the dance steps relate to and influence the music
- What ‘microbeats’ are and how they’re the key to greater rhythmic feel
- Left hand rhythmic variations
Sheet music and handouts are provided to accompany the classes, but there is a heavy emphasis on learning and playing by ear.
Please note that this is an archived series of recordings from classes which ran live Jan-Mar 2022. They have been made available here for you to revisit the content on demand in your own time.
There is no live interaction or contact time with Mel during this recorded series. For access to live Zoom classes, Q&A and email support from Mel, sign up to the current live block.
Who it’s for
Intermediate classes are for DG melodeon players at the Intermediate step on their Melodeon Journey (see guidelines)
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!
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.
