I have had a busy year Teaching the Accordion and I am enjoying the range of students that have come through the door. My students range in age from 6 to 80, and hail from backgrounds as diverse as Czech, Bretton, Irish and East Indian. Their musical preferences are just as colourful and I have transposed, and worked with them on allot of fantastic music. One of my favorite teaching experiences was this Fall in Dunster where I gave three days of workshops as part of the Songbirds Moveable Music School. The drawing posted here is of one of my students. Her sister drew it and they gave it to me at Christmas. It is one of my favorite images and reminds of what a joy it is to play.
