Dave Townsend has asked me to post the following on this forum. The tutors are now sorted.
A NEW WEEKEND FROM HANDS ON MUSIC
A Weekend Music Course for
Concertinas, Melodeons and Accordions
Murray Grainger (Accordion), Robert Harbron (English Concertina), Paul Hutchinson (Accordion),
Ollie King (Melodeon), Geert Oude Weernink (Melodeon), Matt Quinn (Melodeon & Duet Concertina), Dave Townsend (English Concertina), Andy Turner (Anglo Concertina), Rees Wesson (Melodeon)
When & Where?
This new event will take place at Henry Box School, Witney, nr. Oxford, on 10th - 12th November 2017.
It’s a larger-scale weekend replacing Concertinas at Witney, Melodeons at Witney and Accordions at Witney. Some course units will be for specific instruments, some will be for any squeezebox, and there will be band and ensemble options as well.
Like the former Hands On Music Weekends, it will follow the same structure of course units, working with different tutors, and a concert with them on Saturday night. Music will be available a few weeks beforehand. And as always there will be top-rated tutors, some familiar faces and some less-known, all with an established track record in teaching and inspiring.
Like the former weekends, there will be detailed workshops on aspects of technique and traditional styles, as well as ensembles and accompaniment.
The weekend is non-residential, and is for adults who can already play their instrument.
When can I book?
The new website is still under construction. We’re hoping to open bookings in about four weeks’ time.
