I thought it would be a good idea to start a teachers thread. Here are a few British teachers I would personally recommend:http://www.historicalmusic.co.uk/musici ... tyler.html Steve Tyler
travels around the country quite a bit so it is worth emailing him to see if you can get a lesson. http://www.pigglet.co.uk/phil/index.htm Phil Martin
is an excellent teacher who has contributed at the hurdy gurdy festivals in the past, I know he has really helped beginners get the hang of things. I think Phil is in Kent.http://www.heretique.co.uk/Jon.html Jon Loomes
is a very helpful guy who is also a great player. I think he is based in Halifax now.http://www.hurdygurdy.org/ Chris Allen
