Private Accordion Teacher

I began taking piano lessons when I was 5 years old and continued through college where I received my BA with a focus in Music Theory and Performance.
When I was 10 years old my parents bought an old accordion at a garage sale and I was fascinated. Growing up outside of a rural Missouri town with deep German pride was the perfect setting for me to hone my polka and waltz skills. I would play for all the german festivals.
I find great joy in meeting your individual learning needs while helping you achieve your goals.

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.

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.

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!!

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 ...

Just had my first lesson. He had very good pointers and adapts quickly to your musical knowledge. Mark also has great philosophies about music and life in general. Looking forward to next lesson!

This was my first lesson with Mark, but it was easy to talk to him, he teaches more of what’s usable, rather than just hours of theory, and gave me a goal to work towards for next time. He’s going to be a great fit for me and what I’m looking for

Alex was also very patient, for this was my son's first accordion lesson. He welcomed any questions and took the time to explain things.

"A very gifted instructor. I have been taking lessons from Mark for over 4 months now. I really enjoy the classes. Mark is very consistent and patient. He never gets upset or critical, other than to tell you what you are doing wrong, which I appreciate.
I have learned a lot and on my way to playing some conventional music. The hardest thing to me has been learning the techniques of playing 2 different keyboards with different hands. Mark uses melodies and exercises to allow for the development of the techniques required. It really makes learning the accordion unique in that regard. Training your hands, your ears and your brain is challenging but fun and Mark is the best teacher for this by all means."

I have now made great progress from Rodrigo's instructions. He helps me understand music theory, reading music, simplifying music, and how to charge my musical working memory. I have long been a collector of music. This is the first time I've felt progress and success."
