Irish button accordion lessons

We offer diatonic button accordion lessons for all types of folk music styles (with a slight focus on Irish music) both in The Netherlands and online. The private lessons are from complete beginners up to what we can do on the box. We work individually with each student so we can focus entirely on the student’s needs and help them achieve their goals. This includes:

  • Getting started
  • Fingering & Speed
  • Groove
  • How to use the box in a band (chords, song accompaniment…)
  • Style (rhythm & ornamentation)
  • (Session) Repertoire
  • How to learn by ear
  • Custom lessons (e.g. “I want to learn that tune in that video…”)

You don’t need to be able to read sheet music, easy to read tabulature will be provided. Student instruments are always available for sale or loan.

Tabulature

Here is the tabulature for the chromatic and the most common scales on a B/C box ( 10/11 and 11/12 buttons ):
