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 basic keyboard skills before transitioning to a larger instrument. We consider the accordion to be the 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, and Djordje Gajic, Lecturer at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, have 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.
