Accordion Lessons

We would like to establish the largest and highest quality teaching school in the UK for the classical accordion. This instrument is widely taught in Europe and Asia to give children the independence of a portable instrument and has been used successfully in the UK in many rural primary schools to learn the basics as a transition to larger keyboard instruments. We consider the accordion to be an ideal transportable instrument for children wishing to begin learning a keyboard instrument, learning about musical harmony and coordination between two hands. In addition, it is increasingly used in contemporary and experimental music. Owen Murray, Professor of Accordion at the Royal Academy of Music, has provided great support for this new initiative, and it is our hope that this new programme will enable children from the UK to study at the top international conservatoires.
