About Mike

I am a professional percussionist and recording engineer with a Bachelors in Music Technology from Duquesne University. I have been playing for 14 years and am versed in in many drumming styles including rock, funk, jazz, Afro-Cuban, and Brazilian. As a recording engineer I have recorded every genre from classical to metal. I cover everything from sound theory and physics to hands on application.

*** Lesson Details ***
Beginning lessons involve the rudimentary study of rhythm and their application to drumming as a whole. Building a sense of independence in each hand so that both are equally as comfortable and strong will be emphasized. From their students will learn the intricacies of the drumset and develop a sense of interdependence between their limbs. I will start the student with a ...

Mike has been awesome at teaching my 7 year old son for the past 2 years. He is very patient and able to provide direction for even the entry level student. Mike has been able to keep my son interested and excited about learning new songs and improving each week.

Michael is an extremely competent and intelligent teacher. He was able to quickly assess my skill level and provide instruction accordingly. His knowledge of sound production technology is impressive. Michael is easy to understand and a great teacher.

Mike is an awesome instructor. He was very patient with me and systematically took me through the basics of hand-drumming. I am looking forward to practicing more and making enough progress to impress Mike the next time we meet up!

About Cara

My name is Cara, a college graduate of Grove City College with a Bachelor's Degree in Music. I've played flute for 15 years and piano for 10. I've been teaching for 3 years, and I absolutely love it. I love music and I love teaching anyone who is interested to learn about it! From the basics to the notes on the staff, to the circle of fifths and complicated theory, i would love to teach all aspects of music. I understand that everyone has different tastes in music, so i love doing all different styles. Classical, Pop, Broadway, Oldies, you name it. If you're a beginner, or you've been playing for a few years, we can find where you are and get you started right away! I hope you will give me a chance :)

About Andy

Learn from an Internationally recognized musician! In 2008 I set two GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS for continuous guitar playing. I've performed at nearly every important music venue in Pittsburgh, notably: Heinz Hall, Heinz Field, the (old) Syria Mosque, The Electric Banana, Nick's Fat City, Graffiti, the Decade, the Hard Rock Café (Pittsburgh) and Stage AE.

Since starting classical piano at age 5, trumpet, french horn and bass have all been primary instruments for at least several years, but the guitar has remained since age 10. I have developed an extensive and well-rounded set of sensibilities from performing jazz, blues and rock bands, bell choirs, marching bands, orchestras and musicals.

Along with decades of experience in music performance, education, ...

About David

Hi my name is David with Mac's Accordion. God has been good and has allowed me to teach and perform the accordion for the last 25 years. I have students from all around the world ( India, London, Germany, Switzerland, Canada and all around the United States). My lessons are high energy and a lot of fun. I teach from the Palmer Hughes Books and add in 25 years of playing into the lesson. I also send students different styles of music that will give them a more professional sound.

Here at Mac's accordion you have a choice of taking lessons from my Pittsburgh studio or you can learn the accordion at the comfort of your own home with live, One on One online accordion lessons.

I look forward in starting you on your accordion Journey.

Thank for the great lesson! I'll definitely have some excellent stuff to work on. Also, I just wanted to say thanks again for doing this online instruction. You're a great teacher and this method fits perfect with my highly mobile life. I'll be in touch soon to schedule another round of lessons.
Zach from Denver Corado
I was skeptical about taking music lessons by Skype, but thought I would give it a try since there are no accordion teachers in my area. Skype lessons with David have turned out to be quite a pleasure and much better than the best I could have imagined. First of all, David pays such close attention to my playing that he picks up on little details that I thought might go by unnoticed through a video lesson ( e.g. fingering and minor issues with my accordion reeds). Also, because David is so personable, the lessons are fun and I forget that we are not actually in the same room together. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, I have been taking weekly lessons for only two months and my playing has already improved considerably. All and all, I am extremely happy with my accordion lessons with David through Skype: I have an attentive teacher, the lessons are fun, I am getting much better, and the only thing I'm missing from taking lessons with a teacher in person is the drive!
Bruno (student) New York City
I have been learning the accordion with David for a few months now and would happily recommend his Skype tutoring service. I have progressed well since starting the lessons and really enjoyed David's teaching style. He covers all the basics and fundamentals necessary for my level but also focuses on chord structures and progressions with an eye on mor advanced technique.
Stuart Dorin, (student) London,England
I love the Skype lessons! It allows me to learn how to play accordion from the comfort of my own home. I just set up a time to meet and then do the lesson! It's quick, easy and painless. David is very knowledgeable about the accordion and I have learned so much from him in only a few months. I would highly recommend the Skype lessons with David to anyone who wants to learn accordion, but may be hesitant about online lessons.
