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 based in Merthyr Tydfil, maker, player and very nice chap!

http://www.hurdy-gurdy.org.uk/ Neil Brook,Preston, Lancs. I got my first couple of inspirational lessons from Neil, good solid advice :) Neil also has some tuition, maintenance and building DVD's for sale.

http://www.hurdygurdy.biz/ Mike Gilpin Cambridgeshire based maker and teacher. Mike also has some great French Tunebooks for sale...I keep meaning to send off for a copy!

Mike Eaton, based in Somerset another great teacher who has led several workshops at past gurdy festivals. Contact via the forum: http://uk.groups.yahoo.com/group/HurdygurdyForum

http://www.richardhaynesmusicservices.com/index.htm Another very nice chap! Richard Haynes is based in a beautiful part of Yorkshire. A specialist in Baroque who comes from a professional music teaching background. Take a look at his online shop for gurdy goodies. Richard has also held Baroque workshops at past festivals :)

Cecilia Kovacs, based in the Midlands, background in professional music tuition, special interest in Hungarian folk music, mediaeval and music technology, contact via http://www.gurdy.co.uk/

http://claresalaman.com/ Clare Salaman is a professional musician based in London, inspirational!

Although not a professional teacher Paul Sherwood is a very helpful and kind player who gave me lots of lessons when I was living in Lancaster. Thanks Paul!
