In my teaching, I try to integrate the world of music in it's various dialects into your instrument or area of music study. I don't practice music from the perscpective of ego, I treat it as a practice, in the broadest sense of the term. The day to day work of playing an isntrument is about identifying (or even seeking out!) issues and solving them. It's as much about HOW you practice as it is about HOW MUCH. Anyone who learns the correct practicing techniques can increase the speet at which they improve.
I enjoy seeing my students progress in their studies. Every one of my students improves as a player and/or in their understanding of music. Teaching is a profession, but it's the enthusiasm of my students which makes it meaningful.
Aaron is quite excellent for piano accordion lessons. Patient and perceptive about where your current challenges/weaknesses lie and clever at proposing exercises/remedies for those weaknesses. Very low-key, easy-going, professional, and high quality teaching. Highly recommended with no reservations.
Aaron has helped me a lot. Especially improving my left hand capabilities. He is familiar with many different styles of music. He is also very good at figuring out how to play pieces that were not written for accordion.
He was able to improvise and teach me based on my own interests.
Aaron has the patience of a saint! He is always encouraging and yet challenges me to take my playing to a higher level. I started as a beginner and feel now that I can actually play the accordion. Remote lessons during Covid have worked great. He is a terrific teacher.
