Their unique ability to play together with exact precision is unparalleled. They have excellent technique and mastery of the accordion. Their performances are charged with vibrant energy and a passion and love that create an experience that will be cherished.

Question & Answer
Bring your questions! We will talk about anything you would like from producing a show in Branson, to how to improve technique, to playing a variety of repertoire to get more gigs. You name it. We have close to 80 combined years of teaching, band directing and performance experience. Let us know how we can help you. Bring on the questions!
  Thursday 11:00 – 11:50 Room A  
Spice Up Your Arrangements
We will teach you how to add rhythm patterns, chords, glissandos, turns – all kinds of things to spice up even the most basic arrangement. Bring a piece of music with you, and we'll show you how. This is a valuable skill to learn due to the small amount of music that is available for accordionists.
