  1. Roger Watson

    This is a course which in my opinion shows great respect in three important ways: It shows respect for the melodeon, by treating it from the outset as a complete instrument with two ends and two rows of treble buttons. By starting with the left hand, it emphasises the importance of using the whole range of the instrument’s properties and states that this is not just another way of belting out tunes. It shows respect for the learner, by allowing him or her to choose the pace of progress and the nature of feedback from the teacher. The progression of repertoire matches the student’s growing confidence and everything is kept clear and simple without becoming patronising at any point. It shows respect for the music by the choice of tunes and it demonstrates the nature of traditional music, by introducing tunes through their basic structures and encouraging the student to master these before adding variations and embellishments. This allows each player to develop an individual take on any given tune, in line with generational, regional and personal variations which are so essential to any living tradition. If I were starting now, this is where I would start from.

    This course is very good. Mel is a fine teacher, Personable, Knowledgeable and Enthusiastic. The pace of the lessons are great. It is clear that a lot of time and thought has gone into putting this course together. Each of the sections are clear and concise and allow you to work at your own pace. The whole course is packed full of useful tips and techniques to help you become a better player. Not only in the playing of the instrument but on your physical wellbeing. It is also well filmed and you can see everything you need to clearly. I thoroughly recommend this course. Well done Mel and the team. Andy Cutting
