Blimey Carolynn, Mum didn't say you'd taken up the melodeon! Welcome to the forum. I'd offer to give you lessons, but I'm rare down south these days. However, if you're ok using Skype, I'd thoroughly recommend Mel Biggs at Mel's a fantastic teacher and a great player. Alternatively, Owen Woods ( is based in Cambridge, and may be willing to give you lessons. He may be along here to say yay or nay, but he's a phenomenal player.

Thank you for the recommendation Ollie! I'd be more than happy to discuss Skype tuition with you Carolynn. It's so easy and effective - see what some of my students have said about it:,12594.0.html
