Great site and accordion tutorials. I must disagree with your belief that you can't play rock on the accordion. I've been doing it for some 40 years and audiences still love it. The accordion is a very versatile instrument and you can never underestimate what you can pull off with it.

Hi Duane,
Thank you very much for the lessons which I came across searching for some music to start with - they are great. I am 62 and have my Uncle's Accordion and am a beginner so the lessons are just what I needed. Thanks once again.

Hell,
I stumbled on your site and find it very helpful. Im normally a sax, clarinet musician. Played all sorts over the years Im 71 now Had a band for several years as well as played on recordings and performed with many bands. My Uncle came to live with me and he played the accordion. I asked for him to teach me. So he did and I played and learned how to play lots of different music that I knew from my horn days. I do play out sometimes with a band and lots of solo jobs. I taught my 2 sons how to play and am now teaching my Grandson to play. Keeping the interest up is the biggest obsticle that I found. I had my son at 15 playing the accordion and he wanted to quit I delt with him on the practice times and we worked out a schedule that gave him only 15 minutes a day. An accordion Teacher told me that I was wasting my time and that he will never learn to play. My son who is on over 10 albums, plays Accordion,keyboard, bass, concertina, guitar and trumpet. the other boy is equally as talented. my advice keep it handy and play when you can find the time, anytime. Good site its going to help many Im sure.

Thank you very much for all the time and effort you put into this site. Not many would do all this for FREE. I had taken lessons as a kid. I had polio that affected my left arm and had to give it up. I am now 67 and trying to pick it up again. Thank you again.

Quentin

I played the accordion when I was a kid. I recently retired and am bored to death. I had thought about trying the accordion again. I found your site, bought a used accordion and am using your lessons. It's coming back slower than I thought it would. Your rendition of "The Blue Skirt Waltz" is the best I've ever listened to.
If the music is in the lessons, I haven't reached it yet. If it's not, could you post it on your site? I passeed your site to a friend who is also starting your lessons. Thanks for your consideration of others.

Sure would like to meet someone local I could play together with. I'm 75 and it's keeping me moving! I practice about an hour a day. thanks Duane for a neat site!

Hi Duane,
I find your web site very interesting and plan to use the lessons part, as like many others I enjoy the accordion played music.
I am 70 years old now and having more time on my hand would like to learn to play this instrument.
I have bought through a newspaper adds,a "Castelli 111M#135 "piano accordion 120 bass, but find it too heavy, so I would like to have some suggestions on where and what to look for to replace it.
I am willing to spend up to $1000. on one if I know that it will be a good buy.
Thank-you in advance, and hoping that you will keep your web site available for a while yet .
Best regards, Jules
