Subject: Accordian Teacher wanted
From: GUEST,RC
Date: 02 Jan 03 - 07:24 PM

Does anyone know of an accordian teacher in/near Worksop, Nottingham? We are almost on the border of South Yorkshire so don't mind travelling there (I have my passport!) but would prefer to avoid Sheffield.

Thanks

RC

Have you tried asking in local music shops (the nearest I can think of is Carlsbro in Mansfield)? You might also try asking Clement Pianos in Nottingham.

When the thread said Accordion Teacher wanted, I wasn't surprised. Teaching accordion should be considered a criminal act. And the teachers of such be hunted down and jailed immediately. Well real soon anyway.

You're behind the learning curve Don. But I know that some day you'll catch up with those of us on the cutting edge. Sure, it may take a while... a long, long while. But I know you've got it in you.

Hi Guest RC would you consider driving 20 miles up the M18 to Goole, there you will find Sam Pirt who is one of the best teachers of accordian in the country. Sam will be home at the end of January after playing to Sengwer tribe in Kenya. I will give you his email address if you want it.
Cheers Bill

Thanks for your help.

Craig: That is an excellent idea - we even have a music shop here in sleepy old Worksop, although not as good as Herga Music in Wealdstone! Hope you are well.

Bill: I think Goole would be too difficult to get to as I will want to be able to go by public transport sometimes. Thanks for the suggestion though.

RC, if you could see your way clear to taking lessons from Sam Pirt, even if it meant you couldn't go from time to time, I think you would find it definitely worth whatever effort it would take to get there. Sam's one of the best there is anywhere.

Grateful thanks to the anonymous joeclone who corrected the spelling in the thread title. How come so many people are unable to spell "accordion " correctly ?

I could provide you with a bicycle - but it's probably better if I just ask my cousin in Sheffield on your behalf.

I think Karen Tweed lives in your neck of the woods, she has a website and is well worth checking out, I believe she was a mentor for the legendary Sam Pirt for awhile.

I teach accordion. I give a good basic foundation to music along with the study of the accordion.

I live in Brewster, New York for anyone that is looking for lessons and having fun with the instrument at the same time.

It can get pretty frustrating with the left hand, but if you are really interested enough, it does become possible in a few short lessons.

I wish you all well in your search wherever you live. The accordion is not as popular as it was years ago. Once the Beatles came to the US, the guitar became the MAIN instrument learned and the accordion died out.

Is there such a thing, in any language, as a book that tells you how to play the Belgian bass system?

Mine is a C-system chromatic - that's not the issue, the bass end is (there isn't that much difference between piano and chromatic-button fingering). I doubt if there was ever such a thing as a piano accordion with a Belgian bass; the only Belgian basses I've ever seen have been on button chromatics (Emile Verchuren played one like that). Maybe some oddball might have had a Belgian bass B-system made.

If you could stand going to Sheffield Hannah James of Kerfuffle gives accordion lessons and was herself taught by Karen Tweed who she now plays alonside in a new Accordion Trio "Hell said the Dutchess".

Hannah play free bass as well as Stradella11

Hope this helps
