I teach children, young people, elderly people, beginners, advanced performers, basically anyone who has the passion for music and for the accordion. Everything will depend on the student's wishes and necessities. I will always be there to inspire, motivate, contribute and, above all, to help them develop as much as possible. For example, I can also help any student who wishes to further his/her studies at The Royal Danish Academy of Music (or any other Academy) by helping with the preparation for the accordion's entrance exam. Teaching includes, among other elements:
- artistic interpretation
- fingering technique
- bellow technique (bellowshake, turning and compression)
- rhythm exercises
- articulation exercises
- memorization exercises
I also give online lessons, more concretely, virtual lessons via social platforms. In this case, I kindly ask the student to send me a copy (PDF) of the score(s) at least two days before the first lesson.
