Below are just some of the many reasons why teachers believe the Wren 2 is the best beginner concertina:

  • When students start playing the Wren 2 concertina there's a notable increase in their speed of learning in comparison to other beginner models. 
  • This concertina allows students more control over their playing - quickly building up the concertina student's skill-set and awareness, and enabling the student to learn basic and intermediate playing techniques with ease. 
  • As this concertina gives students the control and sound they strive for, they are likely to have a positive attitude to the learning process and have a more enjoyable time throughout.


Here at McNeela Music, it's all about quality. It's a fact that students using a low quality instrument are more likely to stop practicing and even worse, quit altogether. That's why we only provide customers with the highest standard of instruments, as we know lesser quality instruments would be doing our customers a disservice and may hinder them from achieving their goals. And for further peace of mind we offer a 14-day trial with a no-quibble money back guarantee!
