I have been teaching the piano accordion and button accordion (bayan) for over 30 years, working with both adults and children. The accordion is a unique instrument, and I am passionate about spreading the experience of playing it to others.

   Therefore, I offer Skype lessons so that those beyond the Dallas area can be enriched with my knowledge of this instrument. 


   I can explain technical skills, such as the correct placement of your hand on the instrument, different kinds of playing techniques, bellows technique, fingering, and much more, helping you learn to perform many beautiful songs.

Please contact me , and I will be happy to provide more information about this opportunity.


     As an older adult student leaning to play the Bayan my interests lie in developing my technical skills as well as building a repertoire of enjoyable music.

Elena tailored my Skype lessons with a mix of skill building exercises, alternative fingerings and many fun songs to play. I found Elena both enthusiastic and patient with my progress. She has the ability to diagnose my problems quickly and guide me on a path to correct them.

I highly recommend Mrs Fainshtein for any aspiring musician.
