This follows the first repair course organised last year and once again Paul Flannery is the tutor. Paul handles repairs for the Music Room accordion department in Cleckheaton Yorkshire. Paul is thinking of retiring or semi retiring in the near future and is happy to pass on his knowledge. He is a piano tuner who got involved with accordion repairs and tuning some years ago and initially received tuition from a Hohner technician but he is mainly self-taught. The location is The Adelaide, 57 Park Road. Teddington TW11 0AU. The Travelodge in Teddington is only a short walk away. Peter can provide other accommodation options if required depending on budget.
