Really glad I chose Eugene as my instructor, he is very thorough with his lessons, and goes above and beyond to help, offering an open line of communication if I ever get hung up on a part between lessons. Has plenty of background experience with music starting from the age of 7, including a bachelor's degree in music, participating in touring bands, and even winning awards for his playing. You'll be happy you went with him as your instructor!

Eugene has a difficult challenge with me, as I have not played my accordion for over 50 years and I hope to play with my grandsons 6th grade class at their renaissance.
Fair in May. Gene is very much up to the task. The music is "Bean Planting"
and the kids will be doing the bean dance. Gene played the English folk song with no music except for what I put up to the screen. I hope I am up to the task.
He is very patient and encouraging.

My grandson, Grayson has steadily taken lessons from Mr Walker now for 7 months. Keeping an 8 year old focused can be challenging but with Mr Walkers guidance Grayson is sticking with the lessons with enthusiasm.

Eugene is an excellent teacher. He knowledge of music is excellent and he works hard to help his students learn. I would highly recommend him for music or voice lessons. He is patient and kind.
