I would like to welcome you to my website.
My name is Elena Fainshtein, 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. We have journeyed to different countries and learned other languages, but what has remained a constant - is music.

If you are looking for live accordion music at your venue - everything from an engagement party or cocktail hour to Oktoberfest or Christmas party - we will make your event unforgettable! Please Contact Us for more information.
If you are looking for a piano instructor for yourself or your child, Please Contact Us.

If you are looking for accordion lessons – button or piano accordion, or wish to join an accordion orchestra, please Contact Us!

Music is my life, and I would love to share my passion with you!

What is TEDx? In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxMountainViewCollege, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxMountainViewCollege event, TED Talks videos and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussions and connections in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
