However back to your op Stephen. By all accounts Mel is brilliant as a teacher and that must be a good thing for so many people. I just wish that someone like her was around in the 60's

What does a melodeon and a lawsuit have in common?

Everybody’s happy when the case is closed

Look like I'm a little late to the bug squishing party!

But, thanks for your feedback Stephen - and your kind words Nick Collis Bird!

Hi just had my first lesson with Mel and she was engaging, knowledgeable and skilled as a teacher. Very confident that we'll have a productive working relationship for the duration and she'll be a great sounding board and facilitator of loads of new learning going forward. No hesitation in recommending her for anyone out there who is considering taking lessons and looking for a teacher. Skype worked well and it's great to be able to use technology that brings the lesson into one's home, wherever that may be....

Glad to be able to add another voice to the list of fans of Mel Biggs!! Have just had one lesson with her and am excited to see how much I can improve with a little help. Have been struggling on for a few years by myself, except for a few vital inputs and great encouragement from Nick Collis Bird. (thank you and missing you Nick, having moved up north!)
Mel was very positive about my potential, got down to the techniques straight away, and its much easier on Skype than I imagined. Looking forward to my next lesson!

I had my first lesson with Mel last week, having attended her workshops at Shrewsbury this year.   I really enjoyed the lesson; Mel was very patient and encouraging.  I'd been concerned how well it would work over Skype, but this wasn't a problem at all.

Just had my first Skype lesson with Mel and it was great. Mel is very encouraging and patient, which I realise that the previous poster has also said, so it must be true! If you’re worried about having lessons on Skype then don’t be, it feels totally normal within a couple of minutes even though I've never Mel in person.

Now I just need to get back to work on The Sportsman’s Hornpipe ready for next week….

I had my first skype lesson with Mel last week.
I was quite anxious but needn't have worried, Mel has a lovely easy style that quickly put me at ease. I enjoyed the session, it flew past and I felt that I was starting on a really useful and exciting journey. I felt that it was a very personalised session based on where I was and what was going to help me improve and gain confidence.
I totally agree with everyone else. Even if you are nervous, take the plunge, you'll really enjoy it and using Skype quickly seems the most natural thing to do.

A recent bit of first lesson feedback:

"Feeling very positive. You're just the teacher, with just the right teaching tools I need right now. I just wish I wasn't gigging away all weekend so I can start practising my exercises. You were super clear and super relaxed and we covered just what I would have chosen to cover had I had the wherewithal to know what is best for me and the melodeon at this stage!" -Jude
