All levels and styles from classical to contemporary music.
Just to clear up any confusions, I do not own and do not teach: Diatonic Accordion, a Bandoneon, or a Bayan. All of which are accordion instruments that feature buttons for both hands and not just the left.
I do however 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 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.
Diatonic Accordions and Bayans often use the same left handed Stradella system as Chromatic Piano Accordions (the instrument I own and teach) but I am unfamiliar with the system in their right ...
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.
I still don't understand why so many people laugh when you say "accordion"! This has got to be one of the most fun, expressive, international, 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 (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.
