My Lessons

High Quality and Professional Lessons Provided

The accordion is a very unique instrument and is a little different from most other instruments out there. Our lessons together will focus and pay attention to the small details of our instrument to ensure we build those solid fundamentals and foundations that we can then expand upon from there.

I have played the accordion for many years and have really taken the time to hone my craft and to develop my skills as much as I can. I am really pleased to say I am now in a position where I feel comfortable and confident playing in a wide range of styles and genres and I am now ready to share these skills with my students.

Prices:


£28 per hour at my studio
£35 per hour at your home

Lessons are pay-as-you-go, weekly, fortnightly or as suits you.

Beginners & Advanced Students Welcome

Any student is welcome to take lessons with me. No matter whether you have never played before or even if you've been playing for years, my lessons can cater for any student of any level.

My Experience as a Teacher

I have played and studied the accordion since I was around 8 years old. This means I have now accumulated close to 30 years playing this amazing instrument. My mentor was a man named Maestro Giuseppe Piccirilli and he really helped me to master the accordion and gave me the ability to play fluently and confidently in all different styles and genres.

This spawned a lifelong passion for music and I have since gone on to learn and study other instruments too. I have now been fortunate enough to be able to work with lots of different students from all walks of life and I feel very comfortable and confident teaching in any style or genre. Folk music particularly has a special place in my heart and is something I love to teach.

With all the students I have worked with so far the lessons are always tailored and adapted to suit that individual person. I also like to include some music history and some fun facts about the instrument itself within my lessons as the accordion is a little different from most other common instruments that people tend to learn or study.

More About My Lessons

It is my true passion to share my love for music with my students and my main goal is to be able to provide you with all the skills and tools that you would need to be able to enjoy the true pleasure of playing the accordion. In the lessons I will always provide you with all the learning resources and music sheets that you will need to practice in between our lessons.

Many people at the beginning of the learning process feel a little unsure about buying an accordion. The main reason for this is that there are a lot of different types of accordion that you can choose from and it can sometimes be a little difficult to pick the right one. As such I will always help my students make their purchase and I will offer a second opinion to help and guide them to the right instrument.

Although I do encourage my students to buy and bring their own accordions to the lessons, if you do not have one of your own I am happy to provide one you can use in our lessons together. In the lessons we will cover all aspects of playing this instrument such as correct posture, scales, music notation, sight-reading, technical exercises and history of the genres and history of the instrument itself.
