New Book coming out soon!

Published by Murray under Teaching

Well I have finally managed to grab some time to get back to working on my chord book! Designed as a reference book for all accordionists who are looking to explore the full potential of their left hand the book is written in ‘accordion tab’ providing a pictorial guide to every chord you could ever need! Including the standard chords it also explores the possibilities of combining chords to create such wonderful sounds as the C9 Aug 5th chord!!

With a chapter for every key this book provides an indispensable reference for accordionists of all standards! Watch this space for news of the final release!

Adjudicating for the Musicians Benevolent Fund

Published by Murray under Teaching

On Monday 31t March I am off to London to the Musicians’ Benevolent Fund to adjudicate some students applying for funding for post graduate studies. This is a great priviledge for me as the support of the next generation of players has to be the most important work we can do. I will tell you about it when I return. Now where did I put my oyster card?….
