Just to clear up any confusion, I unfortunately do not own or teach: Diatonic Accordion, Bandoneon, or Bayan. All of which are accordion instruments that feature buttons for both hands and not just the left.

I do own and teach the 120 Button Chromatic Piano Style Accordion with Stradella Bass (Left Hand Buttons/Right Hand Piano).

I can teach you how to play the accordion as a lead instrument in a group, as an instrument for accompaniment, or as a solo instrument where you use both band to create songs by yourself. I can help introduce easy songs in a variety of styles including jazz, musette (french), classical, zydeco, polka, Irish, etc...

You also do not need a 120 button bass accordion; 24, 32, 60, 72 will will also work just fine - you will just have less range available.

Jared is friendly, knowledgeable, and effective at breaking down new concepts. My first lesson was awesome because he quickly sized up my current level and was able to meet me where I am in my piano journey. I know he will be able to help me reach my goals! Looking forward to more lessons. :)

I still don't understand why so many people laugh when you say "accordion"! Let's show them different! This is 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, Southern Zydeco, 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 keyboard, and depending on which model you have, there are many tonal buttons to thoroughly change its personality -- no electricity needed!

I can teach you how to create some fun and inspired music on it regardless of your musical tastes, as long as you have a PIANO ACCORDION -- not JUST buttons like a bayan or concertina (sorry -- please note that I do NOT teach chromatic/diatonic button accordion or "virtual/electronic accordions" such as the Roland series -- just

Mark makes the lessons intuitive and easy to follow. The lessons are varied, and he builds skills into each lesson with fun and helpful methods.
Marie G.
I really appreciate Mark's teaching ability. He breathes music and make it easy to understand. I wasn't expecting to make that much progress or to have that depth of knowledge of music or my instrument in only 5 lessons. He gives a lot and he is eager to respond to my questions. I recommend Mark as a accordion teacher.
Jordel
Mark V. was great. He knew how to keep class fun and engaging. He truly cares and teaches piano in a way that is intuitive and can be applied to more than one instrument.

Hello! I'm currently a college level music student. I've been playing the 34-button accordion for four years now, focusing on traditional Mexican music. I would like to teach you basic music theory along with Mexican style accordion melodies. I am more than willing to adventure out to other music genres according to the students liking. Thank you, see you soon!

Tui
My son is a BEGINNER beginner. Rodrigo is a very nice guy and seems to know his stuff very well. I would give him 5 stars but I don't think he realized that my son needed the basic, basic 1st lesson (i.e. how to hold the instrument). We've only attended one session so this is fully based on that one lesson. I'm sure he'll adjust his teaching from here on out.

Mr. Rodrigo is a professional, respectful and super patient instructor. I could not made a better choice. I am looking forward to my next class @

"This is what I just wrote to Shelia, in so much gratitude:
Thank you so much for your precious lessons. They really mean a lot to me.
Thank you so much for being so kind, patient, and forbearing such that as inept as I sometimes feel, I still feel so supported and encouraged by you that I don't feel too embarrassed on top. thank you also for your enthusiasm, love of music and fun, and how you really give all the gold in terms of complexity and high level learning but break it down into accessible steps.
I really had thought I would just get lessons short term because it is so easy for me to get too hung up on trying to please and also distracted and derailed by different tangents and paths, plus the affordability factor over time---but you have changed my mind.
In your case it is so extremely invaluable and I feel like you continually give me new gems to increase my strength and breath as a musician, and really help me to be more brave and courageous to leave my comfort zones in ways that I really could not do on my own, so I would like to have lessons with you for a very long time."
