      • Hello Dale. When I was a little boy I’ve got an accordeon. 65 years later (I am almost 70 years now) I found this accordeon recently somewhere in the attic of my house. Meanwhile I am retired and have lots of time to learn how to play the accordeon. I found your website on Youtube and so I became a member. I love boogie woogie. But i know, first a lot of these lessons, before I start to play boogie woogie. And than practice, practice, practice….. Jaap

        • Hello Jaap. Glad you found your old accordion and Accordion Life. Like you, I am a retired senior and novice student in my 3rd year. I was very happy to find Accordion Life and Patricia online too (Bartell Music Academy). I was even more fortunate to be with driving distance of her studio to take in-person lessons. I have learned a lot from her and have committed to daily practice. Both my wife and I are learning although she has the advantage of being able to play by ear! I’m not so lucky and working hard on reading sheet music and coordinating my hands. That’s where Accordion Life really leaps ahead and being able to watch the videos and use the digital player really helps in the learning process. This is the best place to learn online and Skype lessons are the next best thing to being there! The combination of the two are terrific! You will be playing Boogie Sphere before your know it! I really enjoy talking with other students about accordion so don’t hesitate to ask a questions or make a comment!
