Helena Cooper began playing melodeon in the summer of 2012, having attended Ed Rennie’s Sidmouth beginners’ workshops. She currently plays for several morris sides in addition to running steady-speed sessions in her local area. Helena first taught at Melodeon Playgroup last year and taught alongside Ed at Towersey Festival 2018.
Having attended the very first Melodeon Playgroup as a shiny new player back in the Autumn of 2012 she understands how nerve-wracking it can be to attend your first workshop and with this in mind she will be giving a gentle introduction to the wonders of the squeezebox to Absolute Beginners at Playgroup 2019.
Helena will be teaching using Ed Rennie’s system – having learnt using this accessible and effective system herself.
