It had been 50 years since I studied music, but my ‘retiree bucket list’ included learning to play a ‘portable piano’ aka ‘accordion’. My family thought I was wasting my time, but I bought a small “25 button” anyway. Conversely, David thought I would soon outgrow the beginner model and encouraged me to move up to 120 buttons. In spite of my decades, he patiently but methodically increases the complexity of the pieces. He introduces liturgical and secular music for each season, so I always have something ready to play (usually with David’s “augmentations” so the simplist pieces sound impressive). David’s accordion lessons have been a big boost of confidence. My friends are amazed at my progress, but no one has been more surprised than me.
