Well, you have come to the right place.
SHIRLEY JOHNSON TEACHES students of ALL AGES, from elementary school children through adults, how to play the PIANO ACCORDION.
You can take PRIVATE MUSIC LESSONS (if you live in the Austin, TX area) or if you live anywhere in the USA, you can take ONLINE ACCORDION LESSONS.
*Beginner accordion students of all ages who have never played an instrument before. *Teenagers who play in their school bands, who want to learn another instrument. *Piano players who want to learn the accordion, and haven’t quite figured out how to play accordion chords. *Young adults who are discovering just how cool the accordion really is. *Mature adults who played as kids, put the instrument down as their life got busy, who now have time to pick it up again.
You can learn valuable skills such as how to: *Read music; read accordion sheet music; play songs using a lead sheet (from Celtic jigs and reels to Fake book charts); play songs using piano/vocal scores of popular tunes and American standards. *Add more dynamics to your playing. *Add interesting trills, bellow shakes, improvisation, and musicality to your songs. *Make your songs sound more French, or Italian, or Romanian, or ….

Affordable Accordion Lessons!!!
$35 for each 55 minute lesson. $20 for each 25 minute lesson.
It is recommended that elementary through high school children take weekly lessons that are 25 minutes in length.
Adults can take 55 minute lessons every other week.
Single or occasional lessons designed to improve specific skills are welcome, if the student already plays the accordion. For example, if you want to learn how to add a little improvisation in a song, or you want to learn a specific musical styling.
It is the responsibility of each student to have an accordion available for their use prior to the first lesson. If you have questions regarding where to find an accordion, please feel free to contact Shirley. Ms. Johnson does not sell or rent accordions, and is not associated with any specific accordion dealer at this time.
Each student works at his/her own pace.
