Honors Accordion Level 1 Session 1C

1st & 3rd Mondays – 8 PM CENTRAL DAYLIGHT SAVING – Mon. June 20th (next live Sunday July 3rd Level 1 Session 2) (normally on Monday – but – USA – Holiday is Monday July 4th)

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.

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:

  • Level 1 Session 1 – no need to reprint – should already have from last lesson
  • Dizzy Fingers pg 4 & 5 – please print pg 4
  • This Land is Your Land – please print
  • Chord Positions All Keys – this is the CORRECT chart – should already have
  • Teachers – Session 1 – no need to reprint – should already have from last lesson
