I would like to recommend Matthias Matzke and his accordion mentoring without reservation. I have been playing the accordion for over 40 years and for 20 years I have been making music full-time as a solo entertainer and also in several music groups.
For some time now I have taken a course with Matthias Matzke in his accordion mentoring because despite decades of experience some titles, runs and passages could not really be mastered by me to my satisfaction.
Already since the first lesson with Matthias Matzke this has changed drastically and I can only marvel at what is possible if you only know how to do it. You can't improve your playing through hours of practice if you don't know how to practice effectively and use a working playing technique, fingering, etc. while doing so.
Matthias Matzke has pretty much "everything on it" that you can imagine, from every style of music and also at every level of difficulty. But what is even more important is that Matthias can pass on this knowledge directly and in a simple form to his students - that fascinated me. You play a title or a music passage and Matthias watches you and can tell you immediately where exactly it hangs and has immediately the solution for it ready. It doesn't matter if it's fingering, intonation, posture, touch technique, hand position, etc. these little subtleties add up and make the difference if you can master demanding titles. And even with the simple titles, this knowledge has an effect because the quality of playing generally reaches a higher level.
I am very enthusiastic and can highly recommend the accordion mentoring of Matthias Matzke, no matter if you are a long-time accordion player or an absolute accordion newcomer.

At this point I would like to express my thanks and high praise to Matthias.
I am a returning student who has been away from the accordion for a long time - about 50 years 😊. I took the opportunity of an online trial lesson with Matthias and think I will take a semester with him. I was convinced by his friendly, personal and open manner. Within a few minutes he established a good harmony and we were able to meet at eye level. We had already been in contact by phone in the morning and promptly arranged a zoom appointment in the afternoon.
Through his competent analysis, Matthias immediately showed me which points I had to pay attention to, what I should focus on and this in a step-by-step guide.
For me it was also a new approach to divide a piece of music into phrases/motifs, head movement/fingerings, in addition harmonics and to play certain notes with tension. For me, in any case, a very instructive hour that could have lasted even longer.
From me Matthias gets a "rating - sustainable and valuable ", highly recommended!
Many thanks..........

If you want to learn to "make music" with all its facets, this is the right place for you. The training goes far beyond the usual playing from the sheet. Individual goals and wishes are incorporated as a matter of course. Knowledge, learning atmosphere, methods, good humor and an enormous joy of playing simply inspire.

I can only agree with the previous reviews, Matthias is a professional on the accordion and in addition, he is also pedagogically an ace. For me it is an honor to be taught by him and can recommend him 100%!

To receive lessons from a professional like Matthias is a real privilege for me: he picks up all his students where they are, no matter how old, no matter how good, and develops an individual training concept for everyone. He always motivates and achieves through his own enthusiasm for the game that one is constantly on the ball when practicing. In the course, this can be observed in all participants. He especially encourages audition practice and free playing without sheet music and with one's own variations. This is what I was looking for and I am extremely grateful that I ended up with Matthias.

After I completed Matthias' melody bass concept "Christmas" in December 2020 and was completely thrilled by his teaching methods, I have been taking part in his personal training for accordion since March 2021. Also in this course my expectations are largely exceeded so far!

If I may give 5 out of 5 stars, this is for the following points:

I like Matthias' selection of pieces from various musical styles immensely. His worksheets for these are excellently constructed. They explain musical basics and include new accompaniment techniques, improvisation building blocks, and compositional examples that can be incorporated into other pieces. The sheet music is divided into 4 levels. Thus, each participant can make first progress in a short time with a basic version of the piece, increase to a higher level of difficulty according to his learning speed, or develop and contribute his own style. The pieces are arranged by Matthias personally and impress with their uniqueness and genius.

Matthias conveys the learning and training goals in individual or group lessons. He finds a trick for each participant to master difficult passages of a piece, responds completely individually to the respective needs and opens up new musical paths. If I have a special request for a piece, he writes the sheet music and adds a customized learning video. No effort is too big for him and his ambition to bring the participants forward step by step is enormous! There is a very pleasant, mutually supportive and motivating, honest atmosphere in the group. The confident performance of a piece is also practiced together, which is extremely helpful for me.

After about three months of training, I have a small but fine repertoire, which I play mostly by heart. I learned to use interesting bass lines, to play to demanding accompaniment rhythms, gained a deeper insight into music theory and was able to recognize strengths and weaknesses in my playing, sometimes also in my thinking, which will definitely help me in the future. Furthermore, I feel a new joy in playing and a great thirst for knowledge, for all that is still to come in the coming months.

I have neither criticism nor suggestions for improvement, only the suggestion: Matthias, please keep up the good work! For me it is a huge gift to be able to participate and the best thing that could happen to me musically! I can recommend this coaching without reservation!

To get additional input besides my music studies, I took part in a workshop by Matthias Matzke and was simply flashed. He taught me a lot not only musically but also in terms of playing technique and above all always motivated me with good humor. Thank you very much again for the wonderful lesson time.

I have known Matthias Matzke personally for several years now, and can only recommend his work, his qualities, his conscientiousness, his friendliness, and even his personal advice and support. Thus, I can only give the top mark (VERY GOOD) in all points. Personally, I wish that Matthias will continue to be available to all of us as an accordion coach. Matthias Matzke has the ability to pick up and build up each individual student at his current level of knowledge. He also has the gift to get everyone out of a personal low point, to restore their own motivation.
For this reason, I can only recommend anyone interested, anyone who wants to improve their own skills, to contact him.

The coaching with Matthias is just great!

My desire is to play melody bass and to learn it from scratch in a way that makes sense and makes sense. The coaching is for me in any case totally helpful and meaningful, because it docks exactly where the complexity (for me) begins and it is much easier and clearer afterwards.

Very important in the meantime is the linking of theory and play. Without this theory it would be again a lesson where playing is done without background knowledge and if it doesn't work out, then that's just the way it is. But in the meantime I can no longer deal with that.

Where I myself am not so behind are the learning videos, but that's more because I'm not so keen on the PC at home. Content wise they are top and also very instructive.

The groups are interesting. There are many different levels of knowledge here and I think that's more of a challenge for you to do justice to everyone. For my progress, however, the individual sessions were much more efficient. However, I have noticed that I have enjoyed really good lessons over the years.

Another important point is individuality. If there is a desire to play a different piece, this is taken into account and implemented. Also positive is that in case of ambiguities, e.g. via video, posts can be sent and a prompt problem solution is found. This prevents major errors and subsequent problems from occurring in the first place.

I can not express criticism, at most to myself. I would have max. a suggestion, why do not you write a good M3 school? I know it's an extreme amount of work, but what I've found on the market hasn't been my cup of tea. I mean more like a reference book with the approach.
I would like to see you continue with just that approach.

I award the 5 points without batting an eye for the entire coaching!
I realize there are things that may not be all fun, but they have to be and that's what gets you ahead. That's the way it has to be.

Just keep it up, because we have the greatest instrument and the most beautiful hobby!!!

Many love greetings
Ingrid

since I attend and follow Matthias' "Accordion Academy", I can consistently give it a positive "report card"!!!! -
I've been there since the beginning and I'm proud to have this great chance and opportunity !!!
My joy of playing increased with increasing skill more and more and the practicing runs full of joy and motivation - With approximate success experiences one wants to know it naturally more exactly and hangs gladly again and again time on it …because it is simply indisputable that success sets itself only by DISSOLUTION and DISCIPLIN...!!!!
The valuable suggestions, tips, videos and sheet music templates with difficulty levels from 1 - 4 are inexhaustible...! I really started at ZERO with Matthias......this will be 6 years now and when I look back, I have to say that I have built up such a great trust in Matthias in the meantime that everything that comes musically and "accordion-wise" and where we are still going....only excites me. I would like to climb many more stairs.
Through his positive charisma and energy, I have already been allowed to try out so many "tricks"......then saw that pretty much anything is possible......because Matthias gives me this light-heartedness in every lesson or online session...there are no limits.....Matthias never says "YOU can't do that"......He lets me try out everything.....and shows me the craziest ways.....that are worth going.......I am happy about every little feeling of success.......
Matthias has taught me so much in a short time that I never got to know in my whole childhood in numerous music lessons....!!!! I am full of gratitude .
The great service of the Accordion Academy is constantly improving. Matthias is constantly trying to fulfill all the wishes of the participants.....and is even on weekends for his music students there ! If there are questions about playing technique or tricky pieces, there is always a motivating answer, usually even a demonstration video with different possible solutions........this fascinates me again and again.........and already from the beginning.
Learning an instrument is no small matter.....and everyone should be aware that the coach cannot practice and train for you....everyone has to do that themselves......but it is crucial that you are taught "how" to practice.
The training at the Accordion Academy is a lot of fun. - The learning pieces are taught in individual coaching sessions as well as in group coaching. -
Recently there is even a performance training where each participant has the opportunity to test and train performance situations...personal fears, concerns, why mistakes happen at the decisive moment, etc. are addressed...there are many psychological tips and tricks that are enormously important and valuable for each participant. -
Making music is the most beautiful hobby in the world...and it is an uplifting feeling when you can do something that others can't do, when you have something that others don't have......the inner joy, the satisfaction........and it doesn't matter what "others" say.....being allowed to make music is the greatest enrichment of a life...!!!!!
Very dear and sincere greetings Susi

I signed up for the accordion academy in August 2020 out of pure curiosity to see what was available and was very positively surprised by the wealth and variety of the content.
I could always play by heart and the circle of fifths with major and minor keys I already knew but the courses on the extended harmony beyond the seventh were new and exciting for me. Also the bellows technique lectures.
I have been attending the personal training for 6 months now and am very satisfied with the training success.
Through the individual training, I can now play pieces like L'Aquilon that were previously unattainable for me. I have reached a higher level for myself and even found an approach to classical music on the accordion.
Even in folk music, I can now play difficult 3- and 4-part pieces such as transcriptions by Sandi Jug well.
I give 5 stars for the individual lessons with the immediately following color-coded worksheets with exercises, fingerings and bass notation. This greatly speeds up progress in practicing and speedy progress has always been important to me.

I especially like that Matthias can always show a suggestion on how to handle difficult jumps and passages left or right and how to best handle them in performance situations.
I have already reached my goal of being able to play certain pieces with a reasonable amount of practice and because I like it and want to learn more, I have extended.
