I would like to welcome you to my website.
My name is Elena Feinstein, and I am a professional Accordion Performer, Piano/Button Accordion Teacher, Piano Teacher, and Conductor.

I have been teaching for over 30 years. I work with children and adults in my own home studio Musical Expressions and via Skype.

I have been playing in a duo with my husband Gregory Fainshtein for 30 years, and our music has accompanied us from the Soviet Union, to Israel, and for 15 years in Plano, Texas

Gregory and I have been members of the National Accordion Association for 15 years and have performed nationally at various conventions. In 2013 and 2015, we performed at the Accordionists and Teacher Guild International Festival.

We traveled to Las Vegas and shared our passion for musical performance at the Las Vegas International Accordion Convention in 2014. 

I have been teaching piano and accordion for over 30 years, giving lessons in three different languages. I have worked with children and adults in Belarus, then Israel, and in the United States for the last 15 years. Plano, Texas is my current home, and I work in my private home studio, called Musical Expressions. These days, thanks to Skype, I have accordion students in California, Colorado, Florida, Connecticut and more.

Under my instruction, Peter Gresser and Elijah Clements won Championship in the “Big Squeeze” contest in 2018 and 2019.
