                                Individual hurdy gurdy lessons or group workshops are available


I am based in Devon but normally travel frequently.


Online lessons are now available via zoom. 40 euros/£35 per hour.


Lessons involve working with various trompette patterns and fitting the left hand to this, beginning very simply, to build up a repertoire of rhythms and techniques that can be used to enhance any tune or improve improvisation. I am interested in hearing what can already be played and suggesting how I would play and enhance the same. There can be a focus on medieval music for anyone interested.

For physical or group workshops I like to use interlocking harmonious parts, although this is not so easy for online lessons. The approach is both mathematical and imaginative.
