Sabhal Mòr Ostaig are delighted to introduce the talented John Somerville to their Short Courses programme with this brand new course Learning to play accordion, which is aimed at first time learners and will introduce course participants to the basics of the instrument in a fun and interactive way.
Dates: 09/04/18 – 13/04/18
Price: £260 (£180 for students)
Whether a complete beginner or someone who has been learning for a short time, John will break down the basic concepts of accordion playing – right hand technique, left hand technique and the bellows into easy bite size chunks. The course is designed to be comfortable for both ear and sheet music learners and will concentrate on simple and easy to learn material to gain confidence in the instrument. There will be an opportunity to perform as a group some of the new tunes and skills learnt at the informal Thursday night cèilidh.
There’s only space for a maximum of 7 people on this course and participants are expected to bring their own instrument.
This course will be taught through the medium of English.
