Debra Peters – Accordion Educational DVDs
Debra Peters has made 3 exceptional DVDs – that will walk you through many aspects of playing the accordion with a HEAVY CONCENTRATION on basses! I get so many requests for DVDs – because YOU want to SEE what you are learning and there are so FEW out there!!! Especially for Basses!
DEBRA PETERS … Performs and teaches accordion, piano & voice in Austin Texas and her band – LOVE SAINTS plays … a variety of blues, roots-rockin’, zydeco, cajun, western swing, western swamp, train beats & classic country music.
Personal Note: Debra and I have been friends for years. We are both CRAZY LADIES that love the accordion. I have had her conduct workshops for my music studio and AND her Blues Session at the Honors Accordion Retreat held this past Nov. 2015 was a FANTASTIC!
The one I recommend the most is Debra’s ABCs of ACCORDION Basic 25 BASS PATTERNS DVD. Debra shows you how to add some really cool bass patterns to different style music and she includes a booklet with all the patterns written out!
And with the booklet – there are actually 36 bass patterns total!!
Notated in BASS CLEF for you to read and play, or put on the DVD so you can play along with the teacher! Hours of fun!
