Hi, and thanks for all your good work. I always prmised my self that when I got old I'd learn to play piano. A few years ago I woke up one morning and was thinking this thought yet again, when the thought struck me "You know what? I AM old. Now is that time!"

So I took some piano lessons, and I very much enjoy playing the piano.

But then I realised I missed another glorious old sound from my childhood, the Accordion. I finally got one, but accordion teachers are not so common as piano teachers. Then I stumbled on your website.

Thank you for this gift - the gift of music is a true gift. I'm just preparing the groundwork to start your lessons - downloading stuff etc.

A couple of comments (err... 3):

The accordion seems to attract nice people.

I love your students recordings. I'd expected a load of expert offerings, but they're true student "works in progress". That's very encouraging to a beginner like me - thanks to all who contributed.

I had a quick look at the "Self recording" video. Just wanted to let you know that the "Sound Recorder" application in Windows 7 doesn't have a 60 second limit. I recorded some of your video as a test, and I stopped at 3 1/2 minutes.

A hearty thank you from the heart of my bottom.

Hi Duane! Hope you are recovering well. I am enjoying learning the accordion thanks to you. I just bought a beauty on ebay...yes I know that is risky. I now have a full size accordion instead of the 12 bass! Love to listen to your recordings also.

this site looks great so thankyou for sharing it with the world.i recently dusted off my late father's accordion that he left to me many years ago.he couldnt really play well but enjoyed it all the same - i would like to keep the family tradition going. my late uncle in italy played well. i am of italian ethnic origin so am particularly interested in the revival of this instrument. i just hope that i can learn to play.

Duane, Thank you so much for the time and effort of your great web page, especially the free lessons. I was looking for some help to get back to the accordion, your an answer to a prayer. Keep up the great work & you play beautifully, thanks for that too. A toast to you for a very long and healthy retirement. It's nice to find generous people. Thanks again, Al

You sir, are my hero.

I inherited my late grandmother's accordion, but like many in these rough times, I cannot afford to pay for lessons.

The pdf book was pretty much all I was looking to find free online but you including a talk/walk through with each lesson is above and beyond what I ever expected to find.

You are an amazing human being who loves his instrument deeply enough to share and give freely, of that love, to the rest of the world.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Ally M.

I found your accordion lessons and they are just what I needed - I was given a beautiful accordion but have no money for a tutor. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge!
