Ian Lowthian's Music Weekends

Dates and Availability



Here are the latest dates for 2021 - All weekends will be delivered by Zoom until we're allowed to welcome you all back here to the beautiful Scottish Borders. We miss you!! 

MIXED INSTRUMENTS - Unless otherwise stated, all weekends at the moment will be for mixed instruments. However, if you are not an accordionist please be aware that there may be some discussion specific to the accordion. Some of this discussion may be about chords and harmony which may be quite interesting! I'll keep it to a minimum, but feel free to go and make a cup of tea!

ACCORDIONISTS - Don't worry, I will add some accordion specific weekends soon, such as an Advanced Accordion Weekend, Left Hand Technique Weekend or Classical Music Weekend.

January 30/31 - Scottish Music (including some Burns Tunes) -  Zoom Weekend

February 27/28 - Eastern European Tunes -  Zoom Weekend

March 20/21 - Slightly Easier Tunes -  Zoom Weekend


About the weekends

Scottish Music Weekend - As you know, we celebrate Robert Burns at this time of year, but a whole weekend of Burns can be a bit intense, so I've decided to add some more general Scottish tunes to the mix.

Eastern European MusicMuch Eastern European music uses some more unusual time signatures and as we are currently living in 'interesting times' perhaps we can spend some time de-stressing these 'difficult times'.

Slightly Easier Tunes - We don't want this year to get off to a tricky start, so on this weekend we will look at some slightly easier tunes, from many different genres. You may enjoy this weekend if you feel you're not at the more advanced levels of playing, or perhaps you are looking for some easier material for your own teaching.
