Hi, Eileen.

Please use my personal email address to send me your mailing address.  Postage and copying are freely included. in my offer.  When I begin with a new student, the first lesson is free in order to give teacher and student a chance to find out if they want to work together, so consider this your free first lesson.

Hi Paul, Thanks so much for your quick reply.  I look forward to seeing your digital booklet when you get it done.  Just to double check about your offer to mail me hard copies of the Renaissance bass lessons - as I live in Canada, the postage would be more.  If you're able to scan the pages, wouldn't that be cheaper for you?  If not, can I email you my mailing address from the email you sent me?   I'd be happy to pay postage, but not sure the "logistics" of that?    I'll also search around for the simple melody tab version of the Si Bheag.  (So far I found a melody score and we played it yesterday on recorders)  Is there some easy program that "converts" a simple score to tab?  (I'm very new to reading tab) Thanks again.  (This group is always so incredibly helpful!!)

Hello Paul  Reading a thread here on FOMD on playing Renaissance music, I discovered your youtube playing  Si Bheag Si Mohr  with Ron Beardslee..  If you have the score and/or tab for this lovely arrangement, and are willing to post or share it somehow, I'd love it.  I'm a re-starting-for-the-nth-time new learner, but would like to work on this.  I am especially drawn to medieval and Renaissance music.  I play also in a little recorder group, and thought we might add dulcimer occasionally  Thank you so much.
