One of our original Playgroupers, Helena was at our very first event in 2012 as a brand new beginner. She now plays for several Morris sides in addition to running steady-speed sessions in Surrey.  


Helena has taught Absolute Beginners at Melodeon Playgroup since 2018 in addition to teaching the  ‘Squeezeboxes from Scratch’  workshops with Ed Rennie at Towersey Festival in pre-Covid times. Ed & Helena should have been teaching Absolute Beginners at Sidmouth in both 2020 and 2021 but Covid restrictions rather stuffed that up so Helena is just itching to get back to Playgroup to impart some squeezy wisdom.


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 2021.
