Box lessons

I offer private lessons for irish button accordion for the complete beginner up to what i can do on the box. In addition, I always have some student instruments available for sale or loan. If you are interested just send me an e-mail to carstensen.music@gmail.com.

Here’s the tabulature for the chromatic and the most common scales on a B/C box (10/11 and 11/12 buttons):

scales (10/11)
scales (11/12)

For total beginners, this might be a good 1st tune to start with

egan’s-10-11
egan’s-11-12

Below are the tabs used in the workshops. The complete tabs and recordings can be found here.
