Helena Cooper

Helena CooperHelena 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.
