I am a Grammy nominated recording and touring artist who has been teaching beginning- advanced piano accordion and diatonic button accordion lessons for over 20 years. I combine my formal music education and real world performing experiences cross numerous genres with compassion and drive to help you achieve your musical goals. Whether your aim is to enter the professional gigging world, restart after a hiatus for other life goals/ responsibilities or completely start from scratch- I work with my students to provide the right balance of work push, relating to your life and having fun in the process.

I have extensive experience in a myriad of ethnic folk styles and polkas, in addition to pop, rock, country, jazz and classical genres with artists as diverse as Jack Black, Guy Klucevsek, Post Modern Jukebox, Dany Brillant, Brave Combo and Canada's Polka King- Walter Ostanek.

About Alex M.

I started playing piano accordion at age 4- growing up as a 4th generation musician in my family. Although my college degrees are in trumpet, playing accordion (both Piano Accordion and Diatonic Button Accordions) is how I've made my living for my whole life. I've toured the world as a soloist and with my band, was the tv/ internet spokesperson for Hormel Pepperoni, recorded solo albums and worked with artists as diverse as Jack Black (for the soundtrack of the Polka King movie), Postmodern Jukebox (for a video on Despacito with Tony DeSare and Mandy Gonzalez), modern accordionist Guy Klucevsek, Grammy winners Brave Combo and Walter Ostanek.
As much as performing has been my life blood- I love teaching. Whether patiently guiding absolute beginners of all ages to find their musical goals and the relevance to their lives to fine tuning the intricacies of specific musical styles with advanced and pro players-- the learning process is something that I have always enjoyed and look forward to sharing with more students!
