I started learning accordion from scratch with David just seven months ago, and my progress has been huge. I did start with piano and music reading in my background. David’s teaching style is relaxed but his standards for accomplishment are challenging and he holds me to them (thankfully!). Getting my lessons over skype has been a perfect substitute for being there in person. If you have a reliable and typically fast internet service, then you should be fine too. I don’t think that “not being there” this has hindered my progress at all. David provides the lesson sequence partially through the Palmer-Hughes series Accordion course, but he also introduces other music and some progressive technical exercises to round out the selections for learning. The additional songs are longer pieces with characteristics not found in the lesson book series, and they are challenging and fun. I look forward to every lesson.
