The accordion I use is the piano type, not the buttoned.

My son is a BEGINNER beginner. Rodrigo is a very nice guy and seems to know his stuff very well. I would give him 5 stars but I don't think he realized that my son needed the basic, basic 1st lesson (i.e. how to hold the instrument). We've only attended one session so this is fully based on that one lesson. I'm sure he'll adjust his teaching from here on out.

Mr. Rodrigo is a professional, respectful and super patient instructor. I could not made a better choice. I am looking forward to my next class @

Rodrigo is a great teacher, not only an expert musician, but he shares all his knowledge.

Online Accordion Teacher

Just to clear up any confusion, I unfortunately do not own or teach: Diatonic Accordion, Bandoneon, or Bayan. All of which are accordion instruments that feature buttons for both hands and not just the left.

I do own and teach the 120 Button Chromatic Piano Style Accordion with Stradella Bass (Left Hand Buttons/Right Hand Piano).

I can teach you how to play the accordion as a lead instrument in a group, as an instrument for accompaniment, or as a solo instrument where you use both band to create songs by yourself. I can help introduce easy songs in a variety of styles including jazz, musette (french), classical, zydeco, polka, Irish, etc...

You also do not need a 120 button bass accordion; 24, 32, 60, 72 will will also work just fine - you will just have less range available.

About Jared

I am overjoyed and grateful to say I have been teaching music since 2008. I am a very friendly and fun teacher with a great deal of professionalism and patience. More importantly, I love teaching and playing music with a passion. I play a great variety of instruments and have had the opportunity

About Shelia

If you will notice - I am the only accordion teacher that only teaches accordion. AND MY REVIEWS - are ALL for the Accordion!! That is what I play, that is all I play, I have studied with the best - Willard Palmer & Bill Hughes. I have owned and operated an accordion music school for over 20 years

wow,great instructor. Her enthusiasm is infectious and her knowledge is obviously something that comes easily and effortlessly. I took lessons as a child and teen and am looking forward to continuing on. Shelia is the best! So glad to have found her with TakeLessons!
Scott
There are not too many accordion teachers to choose from where I live. I studied with the nearest one, who was 40 minutes away. I had to lug my accordion and spend at least 2.5 hours out of my week to get my lesson. Not having much of a choice in instructor gives you little choice in teaching method or approach. Although my teacher is a great player, I was having problems with the material and lessons.

I was lucky to find Shelia online! She is a breath of fresh air. She really makes the lesson fun. And you can tell she loves to play. I actually enjoy playing again and I enjoy practicing and taking lessons. She has a large repertoire to pull from, and she meets you at your level. I was worried that it wouldn't work out taking lessons online, but so far it's been great.

Oh and one more thing, she only teaches accordion. She's not a piano teacher that also teaches accordion. It's her only instrument. It's very important to me to have that in an instructor.

I still don't understand why so many people laugh when you say "accordion"! Let's show them different! 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 or "virtual/electronic accordions" such as the Roland series -- just

Mark makes the lessons intuitive and easy to follow. The lessons are varied, and he builds skills into each lesson with fun and helpful methods.
Marie G.
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.
Jordel
Mark V. was great. He knew how to keep class fun and engaging. He truly cares and teaches piano in a way that is intuitive and can be applied to more than one instrument.

Teaching for 20 years. I tailor each lesson to the needs/goals of every student.

For beginners, I can write easy versions of your favorite songs for you, while giving you a well balanced music education.

For singers, I can show you how to easily accompany yourself and sound like a pro without reading a note.

For children, I make lessons fun and varied with learning and musical games to keep them excited and engaged.

For classical players wanting to try other styles, I can show you how to improvise and jam in several styles (I went through the transition and I know how it is!)

For everyone, I can teach you the most efficient ways to learn any musical skill based on experience and leading scientific books on learning, while keeping lessons fun!
