The accordion is being rediscovered by many people as a versatile, affordable, portable keyboard instrument of great character. Unlike most keyboard instruments, you can take your accordion just about anywhere that you can share music.
It is also surprisingly easy to learn via Simply Music’s unique playing-based approach, which has produced many thousands of happily self-expressed piano and keyboard players, and has now been redesigned for accordion.
Simply Music Accordion is a remarkable, Australian-developed program that offers a breakthrough in music education. This unique method has children, teens, adults and seniors playing great sounding blues, classical, contemporary and accompaniment pieces – from their very first lessons.
In the same way that we all learn to talk before we learn to read, Simply Music Accordion temporarily delays music reading and introduces a revolutionary ‘playing-based’ methodology. This remarkably natural approach to learning music introduces students to an array of unique concepts that unfold directly onto the instrument.
Having accordion lessons with a Simply Music Accordion Teacher means experiencing the pleasure that comes from immediately playing a vast repertoire of great-sounding music.
The Simply Music Method is designed to maximize the likelihood of students acquiring and retaining music as a lifelong companion.
Our aim is for students to:
Experience their musicianship as a natural self-expression.
Play a vast repertoire covering a broad array of musical styles and genres.
Develop the ability to self-generate. i.e. the ability to progress independently. This includes developing a foundation of music reading, writing, composition, improvisation, arrangement, structure and theory etc.
Have a highly positive, self-affirming experience throughout the music learning process.
