Recommendations for repair of 120 Bass Jorgensen and simple 12 Bass Camerano. Both have been unused for years and need cleaning, likely reed replacement and tuning. I do know of the Reyes shop in Pasadena but don't know about their work or services available. Advice?
Thank you all for your encouragement. I found a company in Philly that rents accordions. Last night was my first meeting with teacher. Was worried she would find something wrong with my accordion. She tried it and said it was very good for someone starting out. First lesson is tonight at 6pm. My teacher just moved to my area from Germany 5 months ago. She was not familar with the Palmer hughes book I had, but liked it. Really enjoyed meeting her. We spoke for awhile about what kind…Continue
Hi, I am as much a beginner as you can be. Found a place near me to take lessons from someone with a music/accordion background. I am wondering about a accordion for sale here. I am interested since the owner is in same town as accordion repair store with good rep. I am going to ask the owner of the accordion to have the shop evaluate the accordion for me. Question is can a beginer learn on a 120 bass with two switches (aperto,chiuso). One with 120 bass is intimadating to me. My…Continue

I am an elementary school music teacher in a Title 1 (high poverty) bilingual school. I want to make sure my music students have the materials they need to succeed. So I've created a classroom project request at…
My name is Anthony Smrke and I'm an accordion player. Actually I've been playing for over 50 years - a really long time. My mother was a typical Italian mother, my father was Slovenian; and I was the first born male in our family, therefore when I was very young it was decreed that I learn how to play the accordion; and so I was made to take lessons. Being an active 8 year old who was required to learn a musical instrument that I really did not wish to play caused a great deal of stress and…Continue
