Collaboration is very important to Mikhail, he sees his students also as his collaborators working together to create amazing works of sound. He spends part of the live practice lesson professing the deep intricacies and traditions of instrumental techniques, which are important for the subjective elements of music such as reading, pitch, tone, and rhythm, techniques, playing your favorite song of choice etc. and the other part of the lesson guiding the student to Compose their own original works and Recording in the recording studio, sometimes even adding other artists, and uploading to youtube and connecting the students musical practice to the real world.

Mikhail listens to what the student's goals are and adapts the learning accordingly. At the same time he is setting the framework so that the student can learn correctly and make forward progress.

Shelia has enabled me, in eleven months @ two lessons per month, to progress from an absolute beginner on my diatonic 2 row accordion to playing some 30 songs: polkas, waltzes, childrens, popular, folk music and gospel songs. She makes the learning process fun, interesting, and challenging. Shelia does this by arranging for my lessons printed music sheets designed to move me along to getting better. Her music arrangements are also harmonically beautiful beyond belief. You cannot go wrong choosing her to be your teacher.

Very enthusiastic and practical, and the lesson was tailored specifically for my questions and my level of education. Shelia sent me materials to study prior to the lesson and a follow-up email with reminders. Great experience.

Alex gives accordion class to my daughter and guitar classes to my other daughter. We are in Texas and we do it through Skype. Alex is cool with kids, motivates them, genuinely wants to understand what motivates them and what kind of music they like. For the first time in years, no more fighting about daily practice! My kids are happy wth the classes and motivated. Great teacher!

Alex is an excellent teacher. While he is a very accomplished musician he communicates in ways I can understand as a beginner. He quickly identifies areas I need to work on and both shows and tells me how to do that. He encourages questions as well as creativity that builds on the basics. He makes good use of the lesson time and is very encouraging. I can easily take what I learn in the lesson and practice it on my own. I look forward to my next lesson!

Best classical guitar teacher ever! Alex is a very easy-going, super friendly and straightforward teacher. He has an amazing ability to make complicated guitar techniques into very easy tasks. I surprised how much I learned just from his first lesson and how much I improved in a week. I would recommend any student regardless your age and level to study with him. You will get your money worth.

Four lessons with Sam have been amazing. I had previous banjo lessons and plodded from one song to the next. Sam has expanded the entire scope of music for me. I continue with the lesions and enjoy music much more

Sam was wonderful with my daughter. He took the time to show her around his studio and explained some of the instruments to her. He even let her play a few. That helped her relax a bit and enjoy her first lesson.

Sam is an excellent instructor without question! I spoke with him on the phone to get an idea of where I'm at and where I want to be, so immediately when I came to my first lesson we hit the ground running! I am very pleased with what I've learned so far and it's now up to me to practice and have my questions ready to make the most out of the time given (which is the fastest half hour you'll live ) I definitely recommend Sam to any level student who is serious about reaching the next level.

Accordion is FUN! Whether it's your first time trying a new instrument, or you are a piano player looking for a mobile alternative, accordion is a fun and easy instrument to learn if you have the right instruction!!
From traditional accordion music across the world to arrangements of your favorite classical, pop, and jazz, the accordion, like the piano, can play tons of styles making it a very versatile instrument.

My daughter took lessons with Matthew for 5 months and we are severely disappointed. We originally switched because he was constantly changing the days/times of our lesson to accommodate his schedule or that of new clients, which is a terrible way to do business. However, after having one lesson with a new teacher, we realized that my daughter never learned the basics of viola playing - how to hold the instrument properly, how tightly the bow should be strung, the names of the parts of the instrument, etc. He also rented us an instrument that didn't tune properly at twice the cost of what local music stores were charging. She also was not properly measured for that instrument, which I learned was standard. Since I am not musically trained, I went on faith that she was being taught properly. After the first lesson with a teacher who actually knew what they were doing, my daughter was in tears over all the things she didn't know. I feel like all those basics should have been covered in the first month of instruction. In addition, his bio states that he has been teaching for 10 years. At his current age, that would mean he started teaching at the age of 13 or 14. I'm very disappointed in our experience with both this instructor and with Take Lessons for not vetting their instructors properly.

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.
