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

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!

Online Accordion Teacher

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 ...

About Jared

I am overjoyed and grateful to say I have been playing music for more than half of my life. It has never stopped being the light in my day and now it is my hope to shed some of that light onto you or your child. I am a very friendly and fun teacher with a great deal of professionalism and patience,

Fun first lesson. Jared was ready on-time and figured out quickly where to begin working and also had very good integration with the computer, pulling up charts and sheet music and helping us follow along. We look forward to more lessons!

he was calm and nice when I got things wrong

I've had three banjo teachers over the past two and a half years. Judging by Jared's performance today, he's the best of the lot. The first banjo teacher expected too much too soon, and the second one started me out with the basics, as if I had never picked up a banjo before. Jared is starting our lessons at the right stage for where I am. He's patient and explains things well. If I had started with him two and a half years ago, I'd be a decent banjo player by now. Thanks, Jared!!!!!

Online Accordion Teacher

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

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.
Elina M.
I like Mark's approach in teaching, he gives a lot of useful information within the time of the lesson, and it keeps me busy until the next lesson. I love the classes!

"Shelia's enthusiasm, patience and expertise are both inspiring and contagious! I look forward to every lesson and stay motivated to practice in between sessions, if only to watch her do her little happy dance each time I've mastered a new technique. She tailors the lessons based on the genre I told her I like best and is happy to slow down the pace in areas where I'm having difficulty. I highly recommend Shelia to anyone wishing to learn accordion from the best in the business!"
