Why do people laugh when you say "accordion"!? Let's show them different! This instrument ROCKS!!! It's one of the most expressive, international, fun, and emotional instruments out there! So much more than just "polkas": Argentinian tangos, German beer songs, French cafe, Irish Celtic music, Russian folk, Italian melodic, and the list goes on... Bottom line: I love this instrument because it is FUN and VERY "produceable". Half of it is an arsenal of buttons while the other half is a good 'ol piano keyboard, and depending on which model you have, there are many tone levers to thoroughly change its personality -- no electricity needed! No sight-reading required! All ages welcome! I can teach you how to create some fun and inspired music on it regardless of your musical tastes or background, as long as you have a PIANO ACCORDION -- not JUST buttons like a bayan or concertina (sorry -- at this time, please note that I do NOT teach chromatic/diatonic button accordion or "virtual/electronic accordions" such as the Roland series -- just traditional, acoustic piano accordion).

Accordion is a blast to learn and play! I specialize in piano accordion and enjoy playing and teaching from many styles of world music including: European Polkas, Slavic, Klezmer, French, Irish, and popular well-known songs including showtunes. One of the joys of playing the accordion is its amazing musical versatility and that you are always discovering new tunes on it! :) Lessons will aim to give the student the musical foundation and tools they need to explore this amazing instrument. Focus on many style of music and an aim to work toward playing the student's favorites songs will be a primary goal in addition to having a lot of fun! :)

Hi my name is David. 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. 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 to starting you on your accordion Journey.
Accordion is one of my truest loves. I've been a musician as long as I can remember. I've been playing traditional Irish accordion for 10 years and have had 5 very talented teachers myself. I can apply my performance and teaching techniques to piano or button accordion. I've also played concert piano accordion for 12 years, and can teach the fundamentals of accordion playing, advanced technique and style for accordion, basic to advanced music theory, and general performance and practice techniques. We will do a mixture of ear training and sheet music reading (don't be scared!). I always cater to the individual as well to make the lessons more personalized.
