Accordion has been one of the most important instrument in the world! People will think that these buttons are hard to understand, and there should be a secret recipe to be able to play Accordion!
I can assume right now, that this is completely wrong, all you need to know, is just the techniques in the Piano Accordion + some tricks aside of the basics steps In THE BASS NOTES!
Starting from this moment, I’m responsible of every step you take forward in your Accordion journey!
As you saw in my video, I’ve helped many students achieving their goals in music, and, in this class, I would love to share everything with you!
We made sure that this course has everything you need to take you from a beginner (even with zero music experience) and slowly take you to intermediate and finally become a professional.
Section 1- Right Hand Structure:
In our first section, we’ll start by getting an idea on how to play the right hand (Piano Accordion). We’ll start by locating the notes on the piano accordion, understand how the keyboard works, and of course, learn some songs to add some fun & enjoy our lessons! I have also left a big brain test challenge at the end, to test your knowledges at the end of section before moving on to the next one!
Section 2- Basics Of Left Hand:
It’s time to learn how to support our melody with the left hand notes! In this section, we’ll learn how to play the bass row & understand how to navigate using the left hand’s notes! You will also get an idea on how to accompany the new songs that we will be learning in this section. Of course, I have also left a BBTC(big brain test challenge at the end of this section)
Section 3- Important Music Theory Information To Know:
Everyone will that music theory is not useful, but trust me, we need it to be able to continue this course! I will make sure to give you just the necessary information so you will be able to continue the course comfortably with me, and never doubting about missing ideas! You will also have a lot of challenges in this section to make sure that every idea that I was giving you will be clear!

We will also learn how to play scales by ear, so you will able to get a better idea of what it looks like to play by ear before directly entering this skill later on in this course! You will also have the chance to learn life hack(music hack) that will make our path easier to be able to arrive to our goal!
Section 5- Mastering The Left Hand:
It’s time to learn advanced lessons in the left hand! We will discover new buttons, and also learn how to put them with the right hand, so they will be able to support our melody! You will understand what is the difference between major and minor, and how to play them using both hands together, while of course, maintaining the correct rhythm!
Section 6- Tricks & Tips With The LEFT HAND:
Do you imagine yourself being able to play the left hand in a professional way, but don’t know how to put these small details that can even make your music a little bit better and easier to play!
In this section, I will teach you how to play some techniques with the left hand, from the Play Stop Technique, to the stronger bass with the major chord and many other additional pitches to the melody so it can sound better!
Section 7- Advanced Right Hand Techniques:
To able to go way further using the right, I have also add another section for it! In this part, we will be learning new songs, that applying some tricks using the right hand, and also learn how to play chords in the song using not only the left hand, but also play them with the right hand! And the best part is, we will be playing them using inversions some we can mix sounds and make our music better!
Section 8- Mastering 7th CHORDS MOVEMENTS:
I cannot skip the 7th chords, since they are important chords in our music! In this section, we will be learning how to put them on the power beat, and also create power using this type of chords!
We will also learn how to play the dominant 7th chord in both hands, and how to add to our music. This chord creates kind of tension, most of my students love it the most!
Section 9- Discovering New Notes In The LEFT HAND:
There are still some buttons in the accordion that we didn’t discover them yet! The diminished row! Some of you might think that it’s unuseful! BUT THIS IS COMPLETELY WRONG, if you will know how to put it correctly in the song, it will sound really good! And this will be our goal in this section + of course, discovering new types of 7th chords like major & minor 7th chords!
Section 10- Best Of Chords Progression:
One of the most important section in this course, we will learn how to build a sequence of chords progression, that will build a song! Then, we will study a new song, and we will be adding some chords to it: minor 6th–>Major 4th…and many other types!
We will also be facing a lot of challenges, so I can fix these lessons into your head, and really make sure that everything was clear!

Section 14- Sheet Music:
We can’t finish a music course, without knowing how to play with sheet music! Because, I do believe that some of us might like to play with sheet music!
