.Tuesdays June 9, July 21, August 18, Sept.15, 2015, all at 5:45 pm for 1 hour at my home in North Oakland.
This group can accommodate beginners who can read and play two hands, on up to intermediate/advanced. Most songs have easy and more difficult parts. We'll be working mainly from the Great Accordion Songbook--two-to four-part songs from Palmer-Hughes & Sedlon and others.
We can work on any music you want to bring in, provided it has two or more parts. This may include two-handed piano compositions, violin duets, etc.
There will be absolutely no homework. We'll sight-read and practice as a group during the sessions. If you twist my arm I'll provide you with music to take home, but I don't want anyone to feel bad because they didn't practice. I repeat: no homework.
Six total spaces available.
I have some accordions for use at group if you prefer not to bring your own. We may need stands.
Cost is $120/package of four sessions. This cost may drop to $80 when three or more have signed up. Class is definitely a go with those who have signed up already, though. No refunds except for new folks: refund of 3 sessions' cost if you're not happy with the first one.

I've taught piano accordion for many years. I've been playing nonstop since I was nine. As a veteran alternative school teacher and teacher of different learners, I teach all ages. I especially love to work with adults who are trying to remember how to be beginners. My lessons are seriously individualized. In my home in North Oakland.
