This is an extremely popular course with one of Europe’s best instrument makers. Emmanuel will guide novice makers through the steps to build your own  two and a half row melodeon. at the end of a week’s tuition you will leave with your own professional standard instrument.

Course costs include materials, tuition, accomodation and all meals. The full week is priced at £2100

On the courser, melodeons are built using many of Emmanuel’s own innovations, including a special bass end design. The box you build will reflect your individual preferences and there is flexibility in terms of key, inlay and accidental layout. Case wood is walnut and button colour is your choice. Reeds are high quality hand made italian reeds.

Halsway is an excellent place for a practical course – secluded and peaceful enough to free you from distractions, but with superb facilities and a bar on site.

This course will also take place at the same time as a meldoeon player’s weekend, with a concert of fantastic melodeon music.
