Background in live music and self taught. I like to specialize in enthusiasm for the Accordion. Learning how to play what you'd like to play first. With an emphasis on learning to play quickly rather than spending too much time learning the theory side of music.

I have experience with many different styles of accordion music. As well as much experience with improvisation. I am also a music composer. Having composed music for world renowned circus dance troupe Triciclo Rojo as well as many commercials and films.

"When you learn to speak, you speak first, and learn the theory of language later"

Accordion · In studio

Had a nice introductory lesson from Ivan. This was my first time ever holding an accordion, and I could play a simple pattern of notes before the end of the lesson!
