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 not prepared for the lesson. She spent 15 minutes trying to send me photos from a beginner Tabla book available on Amazon. She did not own a set of Tabla drums. She ensured me she could teach anything, but could not pronounce the words used for proper Tabla technique, knew no history and could not even teach me to tune. She literally was reading out of the book figuring it out along the way. I lost a lot of trust from this and asked for a full refund for future lessons.
Erika H.
Karen is an incredibly skillful teacher. She is very passionate about music and it easy to be comfortable with her. She shares her training and knowledge very clearly. The vocal exercises seem very unique and holistic for body and voice health. She is very encouraging, caring, and soul-uplifting. I feel like I have a new connection with my voice and all that is connected to using it... as an instrument and the journey is only just starting. 45 minutes went by so fast. I am looking forward to my next lessons.

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

My junior high aged son just had his first lesson with Jared and it was just what he needed. Jared is engaging, enthusiastic and inspiring.
Robert Silverman
5 star teacher - coach and mentor - Great patience for a beginner like myself - never played before but now I’m comfortable easing into lessons - he shows you why your playing and then guides you through the lessons at your own pace - he also has the latest technologies to help - like overhead screens and sheet music that you can understand- I just signed up for another discount series of 7 lessons - I never give reviews but in this case if I can help someone who us not sure were to start - he is the perfect instructor-

Jared is an excellent piano teacher. Highly recommend!!

I am so happy to have this opportunity to review Rodrigo Rodríguez. I have learned so much with him over the several years that I have been studying with him! He has totally transformed my guitar playing and has helped me to achieve my specific goals which are: To learn to play rhythmically with my right hand, to learn the fretboard better so that I can play more advanced songs, and to learn the repertoire of Spanish language music. He is so knowledgeable and talented! I have learned styles and songs from him from many different countries - Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Cuba, Colombia, and Mexico. In addition to all of that, he is a first rate human being who I feel fortunate to know! So, do yourself a favor and take lessons from him. He is a great teacher!

Rodrigo is a patient teacher who is a great musician. I have only had one lesson with him, but believe I will make good progress in learning the cajun accordion.

He takes time to explain everything and looking forward to the next lesson

As a young performer I was under the tutelage of the acclaimed accordion educator Dr. Frank Porto for over 10 years. As my music mentor, Dr. Porto guided me to dozens of wins in many classical and pop music competitions. As I entered my teens I started to gain more interest in jazz and popular music but still retained my love of classical music. I studied jazz with renown jazz educator John Mohegan. By the age of 15 I was playing music professionally. I was in love with music by then and it has been my greatest passion to this day. I was honored to be asked by Dr. Porto to teach for him. With Mr. Porto as my teaching mentor I quickly learned what makes a great teacher. After Mr. Porto died I received another great honor. I was asked to take his place in his music band. I have been successful over the years in learning what excites students musically and using that as a jumping off point to expand their interests. I teach a classical approach to music with an emphasis on classical ...

"I take lessons from Marcel for about 5 years now. We started with Accordion and I asked him later if he could teach me German as well. I knew he would teach German. No I am taking 3 hours accordion and mostly 2-3 hours German on the weekends and I am loving it.

I can truly say he is one of the best teachers / tutors out there. He is not only super patient but puts so much heart and passion into the lessons.

I know he is mostly super busy but if you have the chance to take lessons with him, I would say GO FOR IT! :)"
