Sarah, thank you for posting this clip, it's so interesting. I can see this sort of thing going down well with my "accordiony" friends, but I somehow think that some of my, er less imaginative "folky" friends maybe disturbed by the oddness of some of these techniques. Not that I can do them of course!! Yet

Last time I saw my instructor Joe, he had more hair... lol

You can tell he is a special guy. Yes he is a hard teacher, but man can he draw things out of you in a one-on-one that pretty much no one else can. As far as accordions go, I have to say that this man represents what the accordion should be in North America. I wish he was more visible, but he's getting up there in age and dreams of retirement are starting to dance around in his head. :)

Thanks for posting! I just got to this, and I was only interrupted three times while watching it. I think it's a great teaching video and I think the first four minutes and the bit around minute twelve where he's playing the Godfather theme are relevant to any player of any style. He's got a lot of charisma as well.

Sarah,
Thank you for posting this. I was unaware that Mr. Macerollo had posted something. I hope he will do more. He is a great artist by any standard.

Very nice video. Got a few good tips and am convinced a must take time to develop a controlled bellows shake technique. He's quite a character.
1) Ballone Burini 46C (4+5) cassotto (LMMH) 3/3 PA; 2) Accordiola Piano V (5+5) cassotto (LMMMH) 3/3 PA;
3) Roland FR8X; 4) Hohner Vox 4k (LMMH) 3/3 CBA
