    Introduction

    Hi, My name is Carol. I teach Piano Accordion. The Accordion is a great instrument. It is fun to play. You can take it with you, we're ever you go. You can play any type of music on it, and bring joy to yourself, and others. I use lesson books, and Accordion Band Books, so that we can all play together, which the students really enjoy. Most of my experience has been playing Polkas and German Music, but I love to play and teach all types of music.

    I also teach piano. Piano is a good basic instrument, to learn. It helps with reading notes, for voice, and band, or string instruments. I teach children, ages 4 to 6, from the Music for Little Mozarts series. The children use two plush toys. Beethoven Bear, and Mozart Mouse, to learn about the keys, and coloring work books. I also use Alfred Books for older children, and adults, from beginners, to intermediate level. Lets have fun learning music.


    I teach Acoustic guitar. I use the Mel Bay's Guitar Method Lesson Books. I believe reading music is very important, not just the tablature. I accept children at age 9 yrs old. They must have a student size guitar that fits them. Also Adults at beginning and intermediate Level. My experience is playing and singing in Guitar Praise Group's in the Catholic Church,


    My Teaching Background
    I have been teaching for over 25 yrs. Most of that time was in So. Haven, Mi. Now I live in Portage/ Kalamazoo Mi, and I am looking for new students.


    My Teaching Philosophy
    Music is fun to learn. It can give you great joy. You do have to practice. Taking music lessons is a team effort. We both have to do our part.


    Rates And Availability
    I teach in my home. I charge $20, for 1/2 hr. lessons, once a wk. If you need to go on vacation, that is fine. Just let me know when. I am flexible with my time. You can pay every wk. or month. I teach Monday through Thursday. Let's enjoy sharing the gift of music.
