My teaching method is show and tell, practice and play, repeat and again! :) I make sure that my students knows the notes first and then how the accordion works. With the help of accordion book for beginners I teach how to play the accordion from the very beginning (or depending on the student's knowledge), we practice first playing with each hand separately and then simultaneously. Depending on the level of the player, they can choose music they would like to play and bring their own ideas. I try to fit the music to the player's needs so he or she would enjoy it and keep improving.
Hello, I have started playing accordion when I was 10 years old. My first piano accordion was red Delicia with 60 bass buttons and I fell in love with it. I was attending accordion classes in music school for about 10 years and participate in many competitions together with my friend and accordion player. We won the Czech Republic contest in Duet category.
Excellent! I have had 3 lessons with Katerina via Skype, she is excellent at detecting my tone over the computer so she can always help me to correct my notes. She was really kind and helpful as I have never played accordion before. I intend to continue taking lessons with her because even though we have only had 3 lessons I feel that I am improving at a fast pace with her. She recommended an accordion book to me and now she teaches me from there so I can see what she is seeing even though our lessons are not in person. She is helpful and has gone above and beyond to help me succeed.
Mia is very talented student who has natural ability to concentrate on multiple activities at the same time which is essential when it comes to playing accordion.
Our initial lesson consisted of seting up the accordion correctly (straps, position), theoretical explanation of numbering fingers, description of its parts, how to use bellows and bass buttons/treble keys.
We continued with a few practical exercises for treble keyboard, bass keyboard and even both hands together. Mia did great and did not have any problem following notes and instructions.
