Teachers or group meetings in Surrey?
« on: April 12, 2013, 12:19:43 AM »

I am just about to take delivery of a D/G Honher Pokerwork, (due any day now!) and shall be looking for a teacher and am also keen to discover other players in the Surrey area. Anyone have any ideas?
Many thanks

Which part of Surrey ? English music?

Neil who is involved with the Dorking folk club is a box player and may also teach or know who does in the area.

His contact number can be found at the top of the clubs website

http://www.dorkingfolkclub.org.uk/

I believe Doug Bown a box player in Basingstoke teaches

You could visit some of the English sessions in the area and chat with box players

Thank you for your response.(:) I shall explore the links.
 
My area is probably best described as North West Surrey, (within the M25) but I can travel, within reason! Yes, certainly in the first instance, the interest is in English dance and folk music.

Hi Anniett,

I'm in Mole Valley so probably not too far from you, especially if you're within the M25.   I asked pretty much the same questions on the forum only just over a year ago.  Teachers proved to be a bit  elusive but with the help of some tutor books and friendly advice on this forum I pretty much managed without so far. 

There are lots of players in Surrey, mostly centred around the many morris sides in the county. Whether you have a teacher or not it really helps to play with others, even when you're really new to playing so morris is excellent from that point of view.

I can understand that you may not wish to discuss exactly where you are on a public forum like this I'll send you  personal message later, see if I know any players/sessions/sides near you.

Hi
I'm in Alton, NE Hants, so maybe not far away from you. There are regular monthly sessions in Aldershot and Wrecclesham, near Farnham, and yes, most morris sides will welcome melodeon beginners to their band, although as we are now in the dancing out season, if you fancy doing that it's perhaps best to wait until later in the year. PM me if you would like more info about any of this and tutoring.
