Rodrigo was flexible with my crazy schedule and was always willing to go the extra mile. I have really developed a true love now for the accordion thanks to him.

Alex was very kind and enthusiastic. Unfortunately we do not have the same kind of accordion so I did not end up continuing lessons with him. The introductory lesson we did have was a lot of fun and I can tell he is very passionate and knowledgeable about technique and music theory.

Soooo Smart! So much fun! Really, I couldn’t have felt more at ease and excited for the next one!

Private Accordion Teacher

Why do so many people laugh when you say "accordion"!? Let's show them different! This instrument absolutely ROCKS!!! It 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, 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 tonal buttons 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, 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 ...

About Mark V

Mark has been awesome. I came into the lessons knowing nothing about the accordion. He is able to break it down into something easy to understand for me. Learning a song already! I am super happy to be learning from Mark.
John J Conlon
Mark has a set system for imparting musical knowledge regarding the accordion, but he allowed me to interrupt his lesson so that I could make sure that I was getting what he was attempting to impart to the unskilled listener.

I have been provided with a few concepts to practice, in anticipation of our next session. He has a great deal of confidence that I will get it-------hopefully he is more right about this than I am. Yet, this is only lesson two and I have set up this new learning experience so that I am only chewing on small bits of the new learning materials a time. John Conlon
John J Conlon
Mark is very knowledgeable regarding the Accordion-----knows it like the back of his hand. He helped me identify a problem with the accordion that I purchased, as used musical instrument, giving me ideas on how to address the problem with the seller. I personally like the man and expect him to be a very good teacher.

I play the piano accordion. I can not teach the various other types of accordion. We can learn anything from Classical to Honky Tonk! I mix sight-reading with theory to teach a variety of styles. I use a metronome and fun recordings to play along with!

Accordion:
I make accordion easy by first teaching one hand at a time . Once the student feels proficient we will begin to incorporate coordination between the right hand, which plays the piano notes and left hand which pulls the bellow and plays the chords. In no time at all the student will be playing accordion songs. I encourage the student to bring in songs they like want to learn.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC
Troy W.
Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!
