Why do people laugh when you say "accordion"!?

Let's show them different! This instrument ROCKS!!!

It's one of the most expressive, international, fun, and emotional instruments out there!

So much more than just "polkas": Argentinian tangos, German beer songs, French cafe, Irish Celtic music, Russian folk, Italian melodic, and the list goes on...

Bottom line: I love this instrument because it is FUN and VERY "produceable".

Half of it is an arsenal of buttons while the other half is a good 'ol piano keyboard, and depending on which model you have, there are many tone levers to thoroughly change its personality -- no electricity needed!

No sight-reading required!

All ages welcome!

I can teach you how to create some fun and inspired music on it regardless of your musical tastes or background, as long as you have a PIANO ACCORDION -- not JUST buttons like a bayan or concertina (sorry -- at this time, please note that I do NOT teach chromatic/diatonic button accordion or ...

Amy B.
Silvia is very knowledgeable, kind, and patient. I really enjoy my lessons with her.
Nikki
I love working with Silvia! She is very encouraging and sweet. You can tell that she is passionate about playing music and believes that it is very important that you enjoy playing. She is working with me to make a curriculum that will give me experience with many different styles of playing to make sure I explore to find what I might like most. Silvia also takes time to make reference videos to use later in practice and helps me annotate my sheet music. She is a really great teacher!

Grey hung in there even with all my connection problems. Then he taught me accordian information that I had been thinking about, but never knew the answer to before, because I have been out of the picture for so long. It was just the right timing from my 5 previous lessons. I am looking forward to my next lesson. I just need to get in enough practice time. My learning curve is in my hands now. Until the next lesson.
Thanks Grey
Al
My name is Al Philipp, used to serve in ministry with Grey and what an awesome gift God has given him in music. Grey would play all kinds of music and my favorites were the old hymns and the contemporary Christian music, but when he broke out the polka music it would get your heart pumpin and your feet jumpin. Yes Grey is very good with the accordion with a great personality to go along with his teaching ability. I highly recommend Grey if you are wanting to learn this instrument.

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

Jared combines a superb knowledge of music theory with an obvious love of the accordion,and i am grateful to have found him.He has great patience,clear advice and is a great encourager.i have had many questions about the accordion answered and playing skills demonstrated by Jared.
Charlie N.
Jared is awesome ... I especially appreciate his ability to nurture an adult learner like me. Learning the accordion involves the cerebral tasks like reading music and understanding notes of course. But then add the ambidextrous skills of pushing buttons and playing keys at different times, and then moving bellows in and out. Let's toss in some performance anxiety too. So any teacher that keeps me afloat through all this is doing well.

Accordion is a blast to learn and play! I specialize in piano accordion and enjoy playing and teaching from many styles of world music including: European Polkas, Slavic, Klezmer, French, Irish, and popular well-known songs including showtunes. One of the joys of playing the accordion is its amazing musical versatility and that you are always discovering new tunes on it! :)

Online Accordion Lessons

The accordion is a fairly new instrument when compared to other instruments that have been around for many centuries. While there are conflicting stories about its creation, many believe Christian Friedrich Ludwig Buschmann invented one of the first versions in Berlin in 1822. The instrument soon became popular throughout Europe. However, during this time, many people were immigrating from Europe to other regions, such as North and South America. And with them, they brought their accordions. Because of this, the accordion plays a major role in all kinds of music styles associated with various countries and cultures.

Nowadays, there are so many different styles of music that incorporate the accordion, including polka, merengue, zydeco, Cajun music, and much more. It’s a fascinati
