I am a complete beginner, are the lessons catered for me?

The site caters for people who don’t even have an accordion yet. The first lessons in the starter course show a person how to hold the accordion, simple terminology used and begins with simple scales and marches. You will learn the notes of the accordion at the early stages and what fingers to use in certain situations. If you stick with all of the lessons on the course and rehearse regularly, you will progress to an advaned/professional level of musicianship.

I go to accordion lessons already, will this course be any good for me?

This site is set up so that you can dab in and out of lessons. Subscribe and you can cancel whenever you want. If you plan to dabble in and out, I would recommend signing up for a monthly subscription. These lessons are to compliment the tuition you may receive already. It will allow to encounter a different approach for teaching.

When will I be charged?

If you subscribe to the monthly membership, your account will be charged on the same date every month; eg: 5th October, 5th November, etc. If you subscribe to the annual membership, your account will be charged on the same date annually. 

Can I take any lesson or do I need to progress from one lesson to the next?

It is recommended to go through the lessons from the beginning to the end. Then proceed the next lesson. However if you would like to, you can take any lesson at any time.

Can I take a lesson more than once?

You can take a lesson as many times as you like.

How can I update my billing information?

Will there be notation or are the lessons taught by ear?

While Damien encourages learning by ear, there is notation attached to each lesson.  It can be downloaded and printed off for ease of use.

Can I take the lessons on different devices?

Once you have your log-in details, you will be able to access the site. Take the lessons on any device.

Video Buffering or Audio Sync Problems?

We use high quality 8k videos for our lessons. This may cause some problems on older PCs or those with weak internet speeds. Viewers can select a lower quality by selecting the gear icon in the lower right corner of the video player. This is a common FAQ for Button Accordion sites.

Is there an audio to go along with each lesson?

Yes there is an audio to go along with every lesson. The audios have the same features as the videos.
