Melodeon Building with Emmanuel Pariselle 65240 Gouaux France July 3rd to 10th inclusive 2019.

Emmanuel has announced his next course in France organised for July 2019 at his family home in the French Pyrenees.

Melodeon building with Emmanuel Pariselle Gouaux, France July 3rd to 10th inclusive 2019
At Maison Pariselle 11 rue des trois fontaines, 65240 Gouaux, France.

Course Announcement
Having successfully run over twenty accordion manufacturing courses (France, England, Belgium, Norway, Quebec) Emmanuel begins to know the subject.
The aim of the course is not to train accordion manufacturers, but for 10 participants to build 10 diatonic accordions, with teamwork for the mechanisms, mutual help and a lot of elbow grease.
The model of diatonic accordion is two and a half row, two voice treble and fourteen bass. The keyboard on the right can be either 10/9/6 or 11/10/4 buttons. The student has the choice of key and note layout. The body is solid fruitwood (usually French walnut) with decorative marquetry choice. The reeds are mounted with screws onto beech reed blocks. The left hand strap is adjustable Velcro type.
If choosing the octave tuning on the right hand, one can have registers to play either single voice flute, bassoon, or both (voice bandoneon).
The air valve is German/Hohner type button (if necessary this can be altered)
Padded shoulder straps and a padded gig bag are included.

Price: 2500€ including accommodation and food.
A non-returnable deposit of 800€ must be paid to reserve a place and to allow Emmanuel to order parts (reeds, bellows, mechanisms ...) from Italian suppliers.

with Emmanuel Pariselle, Theo Gibb, Chris Mash and Mikas Dominas

Full details and booking form, in French, are on the attached prospectus.
You do not need to speak French to take the course, Emmanuel speaks very good English.

I think if you can find a suitable location in Sweden Emmanuel might be interested.

Oh wow, that came unexpected, Theo. Hm. I would really love to participate in such a workshop and build a Pariselle workshop box of my own. But I might want to check my calendar first. And my finances. And any other obligations I might have. And my level of MADness... I'm very tempted but have to consider it carefully. If someone is spontaneous enough to grab the free slot before I decide on anything, please by all means go ahead.

You would be very welcome on the course Fred.  Emmanuel has to order the reeds very soon, so don’t take too long.  Probably a good idea to email Emmanuel straight away to let him know you are considering it.

Here is a video about the course in 2018 made by the local TV station.  The commentary is in French of course, but it gives a flavour of the place and the course.

Although my financial situation is not completely clear yet (fingers crossed though), I've already contacted Emmanuel today - let's hope for the best that he can cater to my needs, wishes, and aspirations. (:)

I’m sure you’ll have a great time. Everyone enjoyed the recent course at Halsway, and it’s easy to see why - it’s a super team, and I’m sure there’ll be congenial people.  (:)  And, of course, you’ll come home with a really nice instrument.  :||:

And the course is now full for this summer,

There could still be places on the one-row course at Halsway in October.

Here is a photo of a view from the venue.  The scenery is stunning.   Elevation here is close to 1000m so the climate is pleasantly warm, but not exhaustingly hot as it can be away from the mountains.

I’m excited to be here.  Just had a day trip to Spain, mountain scenery such as I’ve never seen before.

I’m excited to be here.  Just had a day trip to Spain, mountain scenery such as I’ve never seen before.

The Pyrenees are fantastic aren’t they.  Years ago I took my family when young to the peak of Canigou.  Sadly it was misty at the top, but the climb was memorable.  Not least for the fact that we were ill equipped and not conventionally shod for such an expedition.  I think one or two of the children may have been wearing flip flops.

As we ascended into the low cloud we encountered sturdy climbers in mountain gear and huge boots descending.  Needless to say, we survived the expedition, although to this day, nearly thirty years later, my children use it as an example of my cavalier attitude to their safety and upbringing.  I maintain that most of their errors in adulthood were a consequence of their own misjudgments.
