Accordion & concertina teacher
Coffs Harbour area

By Christiaan Dolislager
Posted Friday, January 1, 2010

Accordion, Diatonic & Anglo concertina teacher and MIDI accordion instructor

I play and teach French Cafe Musette, European and Australiana on the piano accordion, Australiana on the diatonic and Anglo concertina and Manouche Gypsy on the chromatic "C" button accordion.

My experience includes:

  • Performances in several documentaries on television and sound tracks for several movies such as, 'Healthy, Wealthy and Wise', 'They came, they saw, they concreted', 'Murder Cal'l, 'Hepzibah', 'Dark City' and 'The Quiet American' where I gave accordion lessons to the actor William Hurt.
  • Performances at Alliance Francais playing French Musette during the signing of the Olympic agreement between France and Australia.
  • Workshops at folk festivals teaching and instructing in maintenance of accordions.
  • Several bush bands but prefer to entertain as a solo player with acoustic or MIDI accordions.
  • Musicals, recently the musical 'Reedy River' and 'The Flying Pieman' where I was able to play a variety of instruments.
Students can upgrade and try out other instruments during lessons as I tune and repair.

Lesson duration is 45 minutes and sheet music can be supplied.
