'Cos right now I can't I very much enjoy teaching young students, but bemoan the fact that I cannot play a musical instrument, which I see as a very useful skill for encouraging the younger students to take an active role in 'play and learn' lessons. As a child, I used to play the cello most evenings that my school lent to me. That all ended when I fell down the stairs of a double-decker bus and landed on that cello..... I would love to play the guitar or piano, but don't have access to one, (I'm in backofbeyond-stan, Asia) But I do own a squeezebox (or concertina by its correct name), purchased many years ago and never really used. What are the benefits (as I see them)? 1 - I own one! 2 - It is very portable, (unlike the cello) 3 - I don't think it is that difficult to learn to play some simple tunes 4 - It is perhaps an interesting instrument for young students to watch and to learn how it functions 5 - I can sing/speak as I play 6 - I can walk around the classroom as I play I am not suggesting my students learn to play the squeezebox. Rather I suggest that it would be an ideal, musical accessory for song and dance lessons. What do you think? Or should I stick to my broken cello?
