Private Accordion Teacher

Hi, everyone! I'm a graduate from Gnesin Academy of Music, with Master's degree. I acquired my background in Belarus and Russia, countries with rich musical history, traditions and well established musical education. As a concert performer (accordion and piano) I have quite a big experience which I'm trying to incorporate into my teaching practice. It is always a great pleasure to share my passion for music and art in general with anybody interested!

Ivan is a wonderful teacher! I am a beginner accordion student with no prior musical experience and Ivan has been extremely informative, patient, and encouraging in our lessons.

After five lessons in I can read and hear music better and feel very happy with my progress thus far. He is very highly recommended!
Leeza
The teacher is very professional and very nice.
Marta
It can’t be easy teaching accordion to a stubborn old lady with no musical background. Despite this, Ivan is exceedingly patient and at the same time manages to be very productive with each lesson. He is kind and generous with his time. I would recommend him without hesitation.

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 ...

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!

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.

"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."
