Accordion for Kids, USA is a no cost introductory program that is an opportunity for boys and girls 8-12 to test their interest in playing the accordion, and it’s free! Yes, for six weeks, without charge, each student participant will be lent a 12-bass accordion, DVD or VHS of the ABC Accordion Video Course for Beginners©,  music stand, and music course booklet.

A modest deposit on the loaned items will be required.  With individual, group, and programmed instruction, the child will enjoy a positive musical experience.
Following a culminating recital and awards ceremony,

The ​teacher will schedule an appointment with parent/guardian to discuss student’s progress and interest in continuing instruction or returning loaned items. There is no obligation, just a great opportunity.
