I think this belongs here, because he also gives lessons. (Patrick Cadeillan)
Play the mp3s in chrome since the "green arrow" didn't show in explorer

I think beginners & intermediates could be happy here for quite a while to get into French styles of music.

I would love this to be really good, as I live just an hour away from St. Malo, in Jersey. However, I have listened to several of the recordings, I presume made by the teacher, and I am not very impressed, in comparison say, to Florence Pinvidic here: http://diouflo.com/english/english.html
But, hey ho, what do I know! I wonder what others think?

Yes, maybe not, but he plays the pieces slowly in rhythm, and picks up the tempo to demonstrate at speed. It is well organized and a decent selection of tunes.

Thanks for the other link, it is also excellent.

Both good sources but I would advise anyone getting into French tunes to look for videos (utube etc) showing the dances. This is dance music and if the musician does not know what the dance is like they can miss the feel of the tune. True of all tunes but in particular those of a new, unfamiliar, style. I think bourrees in particular can cause problems for English style players unless they are familiar with the dances.
