Frank Nocera Posted March 23, 2019 Share Posted March 23, 2019 Greetings, I am recently retired, living in the Tampa Bay area and have decided to take up the concertina in my dotage. Unfortunately, the sum total of my musical experience and ability could easily be put in a flea's navel and there would still be room for lint. But what I lack in talent may be made up for somewhat by sheer grim determination. Having done some research, I believe I will be acquiring a used Jack / Jackie / or Rochelle as my first instrument. It appears that there are plenty of tutorials around for the Anglo, so I am leaning towards the Rochelle. I've read the postings on this general forum and that has helped me come to that choice. Let me know if I have erred in this conclusion. I live in Dunedin, a small town on the West Coast with a penchant for things Scottish and more craft breweries than stray cats. It has an international award-winning community pipe band and bagpipe is even taught in the schools here. Alas, after much inquiry and recieving of strange looks, I have not been able to find anyone who teaches concertina or even accordion. Does anyone know of a person who gives concertina lessons in the Tampa Bay area? Thanks for letting me in! Frank Nocera The Wannabe Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
