Hi! I'm Dallas Vietty

I'm a full time professional accordion player and teacher living in on the East Coast. I play a few different styles of music, you can check out my performer website here.

I've been teaching accordion lessons through Skype since 2013.

I love working with all levels of students and all types of musical interest. My students range from just for fun hobbyists to dedicated performers.

Here's some things that I do that help my Skype students maximize their growth:

  • Our lessons span three month segments. This lets us set a destination and create a clear path of lessons to get there.
  • All of our Zoom lessons are recorded and posted privately to YouTube so you can re-watch, review and remind.
  • You get automatic reminders 24 hours before your lesson, so your busy schedule never gets in the way of your passion to learn.
  • You can take one of my online group classes to learn music theory (chords, scales, harmony, melody).
If you're ready to start, scroll up to the top of this page and find the plan is best for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does learning accordion through Skype/Zoom actually work?

A: Yes! You can learn accordion through Skype (video chat) from your house, office, or wherever you've got a decent internet connection.

Check out the testimonial quotes on this page for staisfied students.

Q: What do I need?

A: Zoom lessons are simple!  After you sign up we will email and set up our dates and a plan for the three months of lessons.

The other things you'll need for Skype (video chat) lessons with me are:
  • an accordion
  • a device that connects to the internet: computer/laptop, tablet, smartphone (although the screen will be very small
  • decent speed internet connection
  • for best results you should be close to your wireless router or directly plugged in via ethernet cable
  • Download the app Zoom Meetings on your device. This is the app I use these days instead of Skype. It's free, it works much better.

Q: When do you offer lessons?

A: I teach Mon-Fri from 10a-10p Eastern Time. Returning students have scheduling priority, otherwise if the day and time is open, it's yours.

I teach in 3 month sessions:

- Winter (Jan-Mar)
- Spring (Apr-June)
- Summer (July-Sept)
- Fall (Oct-Dec)

Q: Can I take just one lesson?

A: There are two situations I offer one off lessons for:

1. New students who want to try out lessons with me before they commit to a package. See the column here 'Can I try out lessons?'

2. For professional/gigging musicians I will offer a lesson here or there. To inquire about that contact me here.

Q: How much does it cost?

A: I offer two packages:
- 6 Lessons for $380 (or three payments of $126.66)
- 9 Lessons for $515 (or three payments of $171.66)

Scroll up to the top of this page for more info and to sign up.

Discounts are available for college age students. Just contact me through this page to request.

Q: Can I try out lessons?

A: Yes! I can imagine that committing to 3 months of lessons can be risky and intimidating if you aren't already familiar with me and my teaching style.

New students can try out a one off lesson which counts toward your first lesson package.

You'll still pay for that one lesson ($65), but if you decide to sign up for a lesson package afterward, I'll discount that amount from the package price.

To setup your first one lesson just send me an email, my contact info is on this page.
