1st & 3rd Mondays – 8 PM CENTRAL DAYLIGHT SAVING

OKAY – you have asked for it – SOO HERE WE GO!!!! Here is the link to this LIVE lessons and Click on the Session Level for that week – via

UStream – http://www.ustream.tv/channel/my-accordion-blog—shelia-lee

Youtube – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqaG61m9Hww

I will be LIVE – IN FRONT of the camera – showing HOW TO PLAY – note for note, exercise for exercise, song for song – right through everything you will need to know!!! You will even be able to comment questions and suggestions!

These sessions will be recorded so you can catch it at another time – or use it for review. AND see that even though I am starting VERY LOW – I will have challenges for the advance beginner, the intermediate player and the teachers!

I will be teaching on a TRI-Level basis. Please print out material needed:

  1. Beginner – NEVER had an accordion on before
    1. 1 PH Bk 1 – Keyboard – Session 1 (Page 1 to 19)
      1. pg 28 – answer questions
    2. Fill out the Theory Book through the Review Pg 3 to 9
  2. Intermediate – Chords and 1 Advanced Solo –
    1. Dizzy Fingers page 5 (Last Line)
    2. A Teenager In Love – Sight Reading
    3. Chord Positions All Keys (Corrected link)
  3. Teacher – How to relate these ABOVE skills to your students
    1. 1 PH Bk 1 – Workbook Level 1 Session 1
      1. Review pg 1 to 14
      2. Save the Student Worksheets to a Teacher Binder
      3. Video yourself playing the Solos through pg 19 in Student Sessions (Slow and fast)

The largest motivation I have for doing all this – is that there are NOT ENOUGH ACCORDION TEACHERS out there these days – and those that do teach – are hurting for new and modern materials to use. AND here in the USA – there is NO Certification process – for future accordionists OR teachers and no accordion organizations that offers it.

Please have these Books ready:

How do you “satisfy” a session level?
These sessions will be password protected because there is a $30US charge for each Session Level (this could take several 1 hours sessions to cover 1 Session level). I am showing this first session level – so you can get an idea of the intensity of the materials that will be covered. To receive your certificate or plaque – your fees will need to be paid.

  • There will be written assignments that are to be turned in!
  • There will be playing assignments that you will video yourself and post.
  • With these accomplished – you will receive a “PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATE“! for that Session Level.
  • Those going for the Teacher Certificate – will only have a few more assignments to turn in and you will receive the “MASTER CERTIFICATE“! for that Session Level.
  • There are two certificates available. Performance and Master (teacher & Performance)
  • WHEN the 10 sessions for that level is accomplished – you will receive a WOODEN PLAQUE denoting the Performance or Master Classification!!!
