This was my first lesson after many years, and I was afraid I couldn't do it. Karen relaxed me immediately and encouraged me. I walked out of there pretty excited and very much encouraged! I look forward to my next lesson!

20+ years experience, CD recording, orchestra etc.!
EVERY MUSIC STYLE!

Teaching is more a hobby and pleasure for me than a side job. My students mostly have to remind me that the time is over and I have to let them go. ;)

As I said, it is passion and love for the music and this fantastic instrument. Send me a message if you have any questions.

If you don't own an instrument. No problem. I can provide a rental until we find the right instrument for you within you budget.

I am looking forward to hear from you.

Marcel tutored my 6 year old daughter in German. He is very friendly and likable, and she enjoyed working with him right away! He even played "Filly's" with her (a German My Little Pony toy!" He is very patient and makes learning fun. He was punctual and also flexible. We had a great experience working with Marcel!

I still don't understand why so many people laugh when you say "accordion"! 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.)

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 6 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 6 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. I have several accordions that can be rented as well.

It was a great first lesson - she assessed where I was, fixed some technique problems I was having and gave me things to work on for next time. She's very friendly and approachable, which is great for new-student anxiety ;-).

First lesson couldn't be better! Connor was totally patient with my kiddo, and she gave good advice on what to look for in a smaller accordion and variations in shoulder straps to help my tiny daughter not get tired from trying to hold up a big (at least for her) accordion.

Why TakeLessons?

Accordion Lessons

Do you want to learn how to play the accordion? If yes, then you’ve come to the right place, but first here is a little background on the instrument. The accordion was initially introduced to the United States by Count Guido Deiro, an Italian-American musician who specialized in vaudeville, a theatrical genre of music. Since then, the accordion has played an important role in all types of music including more prominently clogging, Polka, and Zydeco from Cajun and African-American traditions in Louisiana.

Often referred to as the squeezebox, it is played by compressing and expanding the bellows of the instrument while pressing keys to produce specific notes. It is often considered a challenging instrument to play, however with accordion lessons provided by our music instructors it can be fun and learned more easily. In addition, our instructors are experienced musicians and certified to provide lessons plans that will help increase your knowledge and excel more quickly. So whether you’re a beginner or an experienced musician we have the accordion lessons to help you achieve your musical goals.
