I'm having some fun trying to learn the accordion with your site. I've got a small but full 120 bass instrument and I have a question I hope you can help me with. I'm good with playing the C and G bass notes and major chords, but when I got to Lesson 7 and adding the F, I'm having a little trouble. Should I be sliding my wrist up and down to make the distance or should this all just be under my fingers without feeling the need to move my whole hand (and thus, my wrist). This feels awkward. I imagine at some point I would have to move my hand when playing more distant positions on the bass side and I can't imagine how that's done. how can you slide your hand up and down; what's supporting that side of the instrument? Thanks for any help you can provide as I'm just a little confused about this.

My big brother had an accordion when I was little, but I was never allowed to touch it. Now I'm in my 50s and I bought myself an accordion on ebay, which turned out being a good deal. I so appreciate your lessons! I'm nearly through all of them and feel like I have truly learned something new that I'd wanted all my life. Thank you so much.

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.
