First lesson was great! Gordon easily and fluidly adjusted the pace by what I picked up and what challenged me. He's clearly extremely knowledgeable, but still able to talk to a beginner on a beginner's level

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!

About Mary

I started playing saxophone in 1994. It was an immediate passion! As the years went on my thirst for music grew and I picked up more instruments. I earned my Bachelor’s of Arts in Music from UW-Milwaukee in 2006. I continued to study privately on Saxophone with Curt Hanrahan and on Accordion with S

She is very nice.
Austin H.
Mary was a fun and patient piano lesson teacher. I have never taken any music lessons before so we started with the basics but she did a good job of finding the pace that I learned at. She taught slow enough for me to catch on, but not too slow to where I felt like my 30 min lessons were a waste of time/money.

Unfortunately, I had to cancel the rest of my lessons with Mary because I was becoming too busy with work to stay committed to my lessons and practice. If I ever take lessons again I'll definitely sign up with Mary again, zero complaints.

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

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 was great!
Carter
This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

Karen is very patient & caring while teaching.

"I am coming right along in my lessons, making progress every week. It's due to Rob's approach, he's very easy to sit with and very easy going. He does a recital twice a year and I was very impressed with the rapport he has with his students and his program. Although I was very nervous about performing, it was the best thing I have done."

Online Accordion Lessons

Accordion Lessons

The accordion is a fairly new instrument when compared to other instruments that have been around for many centuries. While there are conflicting stories about its creation, many believe Christian Friedrich Ludwig Buschmann invented one of the first versions in Berlin in 1822. The instrument soon became popular throughout Europe. However, during this time, many people were immigrating from Europe to other regions, such as North and South America. And with them, they brought their accordions. Because of this, the accordion plays a major role in all kinds of music styles associated with various countries and cultures.

Nowadays, there are so many different styles of music that incorporate the accordion, including polka, merengue, zydeco, Cajun music, and
