Hi all, I'm brand-new and looking to learn the concertina (goal is to be competent with Irish music, shanties, and some American folk). I've purchased a "Wren 2" Anglo C/G 30-key concertina from McNeera, and am slowly going through the accompanying videos - but it's been a long time since I've learned an instrument, and to be honest it's been very slow going just getting a handle on scales, let alone anything further. I'm just too rusty with teach yourself strategies, and would like a little push to get me going. To that end, I was wondering if anyone knew a concertinist in the Washington, DC area that might be able to take on a very beginner for some start up lessons? Keeping in mind appropriate coronavirus-mitigation, of course. Thanks so much!
