Concertina group based in Maidstone, Kent, UK
One of the main reasons that Kettle Bridge Concertinas was formed was to encourage new players to take up the concertina. Well, I am pleased to report that we currently have a very enthusiastic set of beginners who are starting to appreciate the joys of playing our favourite instrument.
Our learners have a great variety of previous musical experience ranging from accomplished musicians who want to try a new instrument to those who could not read music at all but fancy a new challenge. Our beginners groups cater for all levels of experience and ability, and teach all the necessary technical skills to get to grips with a concertina.
The sessions are always great fun and a good way to meet new people while developing a new skill. So if you fancy giving it a go, just visit our Contact Page and drop us an email. We would love to hear from you.
We are on Facebook. Click here to see all the latest news and please "Like" us while you are there.
We always welcome people getting in touch with us, whether to find out more about us, learning the concertina or pretty much anything!
