My name is Elena Fainshtein, and I am a professional accordion/bayan teacher, piano teacher, accordion performer and conductor. I have a Masters Degree of Art in Music. Last year I gave a talk on the TEDx Talk Show, this year I was nominated by Times Square Press as a best accordion teacher of the year in the US.

I enjoy seeing progress as my student’s journey through their learning experience. I am very proud of the fact that for a second year in the row my accordion students became Champions of Texas in Polka category. Last year Peter Gresser won Championship and this year - Elijah Clements become a great prize winner.

I enjoy seeing the awe in the eyes of my Musical Expressions Accordion Band from their own performance after each and every rehearsal and specially on the concerts - they are doing so well!

I am very proud of the fact that my piano and accordion students are playing in clubs, retirement centers, in their schools and everywhere they choose to.

Elena is great! She helped me to find the right accordion. She is flexible in scheduling. She customizes the class to suit my needs. She is knowledgable, positive, energetic, and well organized. She is an excellent accordionist and she will help her students to be as well. Im really happy to find her. If youre looking for an accordion instructor in the area, search no more. Hire Elena!
