Hi Acon,

I am from Taiwan and have learned C-system CBA for about 10 months.
Just have moved to Brisbane for about 2.5 months but couldn't find any teacher
or player here. So frustrated about this...

And seems nobody here play CBA.
Did you find anyone? Just a suggestion - have you considered trying lessons by skype?

Hi Soulsaver,

Thank you for asking, but unfortunately no. I couldn't find anyone using free bass CBA here.
I am teaching myself right now. Skype lesson sounds a little bit bizarre to me because
I thought instrument playing knowledge should be passed face by face.

I don't know. Maybe I will try someday.

Cheers.

I will give a vote for Skype lessons being very valuable, especially if there's no teacher close to you. I'm self-learning PA, but because I'm in the country near Melbourne, Australia I take melodeon lessons over Skype with a teacher in the UK. We meet fortnightly in the evening for me, morning for her. It took a few lessons to get our working method going well, but after we got used to the delay, moving the camera between chatting and working angles during the lesson, and other things, it's really terrific. It's not perfect, but I wouldn't be making the same sort of progress without it.

Hi PleurisyPlains,

Thanks for sharing your fantastic experience. I'll definitely try skype if I can find a good teacher and enough time!

Cheers,

Is there any way a list or database could be created that would allow you to do searches for accordionists in an area? I am from central Virginia in the US. Would love to be able to do a search on Virginia or something similar and see if there is anyone else out there .

I believe that this is something that is beyond this current forum software. This would have to be some kind of add-in, though. I did a 10 second search and did not find anything immediately.

We could set up a shared Google map, where people could just put a marker down wherever they are.
