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.

I am ten and learning the accordion. I just got my first lesson and he was great! I learned a ton and he was very nice! I am looking forward to the next lesson already!

Excellent teacher for my 5 year old granddaughter. Made it fun and did not push.

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.
