Melodeon Beginners Part 1

  • This event has now passed

A rare chance for beginners to pick up and play the small but mighty melodeon (aka button accordion/squeezebox), with expert guidance from tutor Mel Biggs. Drawing on traditional English dance tunes, the workshop will introduce learning the instrument left hand first to develop effective rhythmical control and coordination, before learning your first tune with both hands. This workshop is for anyone interested in English folk music, folk dance or trying a squeezebox for the first

time. Participants do not need to read music notation, and no previous melodeon or folk music experience is required, but a basic knowledge of music (scales, chords, time signatures) will help. This workshop is for instruments tuned in D/G with a minimum of 2-rows and 8-basses. Limited numbers are available to borrow – please contact us at

Tea & coffee is provided.
Participants on a full day workshop or course should bring a packed lunch and other snacks.
