"This accordion dvd is very thorough and very good about covering a broad base of styles and techniques that can be applied in a number of different musical situations."

"The author is a likable guy and he gives some
swell advice about choosing an instrument. I had
owned an accordion for years before watching this
so I had figured out a lot of stuff on my own -
even though I'm still not very good at playing.
His advice is the same sort you would get about
learning the piano - play Hanon exercises. He
shows how to play the bass side of the accordion,
how to shake the bellows, etc...
If you a rank beginner with the accordion and
you don't know music I don't think you'll get much
out of this. If you know music and want to learn
the accordion you'll find it much more useful.
Professor Louie's Rock and Blues Accordion covers
much of the same material and has more stuff as
well - a decent primer on how to play some Blues
jams on the instrument. I would recommend
the Professor's DVD before this one.
DVD-Accordion Styles And Techniques

""DVD-Accordion Styles And Techniques" was a very refreshing DVD to me. It gave me inspiration to make my playing more interesting. The DVD is not for beginners, after my oppinion, so the first mabey 15 minutes of the DVD that explain what an accordion is, is not needed. It would have been a help if notes on papir etc. followed the DVD to clear up and explain all the "gold corn" Joey Miskulin gives. I can recommend this DVD for all accordionplayers that need an extra push or are stucked with there accordionplaying"
