A chance for melodeon players at the beginner level to explore the instrument and basic rhythms in more depth. This workshop will focus on playing traditional English polkas, jigs and waltzes, how to start crossing the rows and introduce some left-hand variation. Suitable for players who have some basic knowledge of the instrument already (i.e. can play a number of simple tunes oom-pah on the left hand), and who have their own instrument. Participants do not need to read music notation, 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.
If you have previously done Melodeon Beginners Part 1 and need to borrow an instrument in order to take part in this part 2 workshop, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tea & coffee is provided.
Participants on a full day workshop or course should bring a packed lunch and other snacks.
