ACCORDION / BANDONEON lessons for all levels and ages

Hello! My name is Kaspar. I am a professional accordion & bandoneon player from Estonia and currently based in Brussels, Belgium.

I'm holding a bachelor degree in jazz music (accordion, keyboards) from Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre and master degree (bandoneon) in World Music / Argentine Tango from Codarts / Hogeschool voor de kunsten (Rotterdam, the Netherlands). During my prior studies, I have found, that I would like to specialize in Argentinian tango/folklore and combine my previous knowledge and skills in jazz and world music as an interpreter and composer. I have been teaching accordion, bandoneon, jazz piano, and music theory for the last 9 years and I have experience with students of different ages and levels.

I'm offering accordion and bandoneon lessons for all ages and levels.

Topics:

- Technical aspects (scales, modes, exercises, patterns, timing and tone control)

- Improvisation and phrasing in different styles - jazz, tango (traditional and tango nuevo), Argentine folklore and classical music and how to adapt them on accordion/bandoneon

- Music theory

- How to make the accompaniment and to build chords


More information about me:

For the last 6 years, I have been a composer and a leader in a band called Abraham’s Café. The group has given more than 150 concerts around Estonia and abroad at different jazz clubs and festivals. We have recorded 2 albums – “Journey to Haran” (2013) and “Berber Cinema” (2015). The music of the last album “Berber Cinema” was mainly composed for the Estonian-Palestinian documentary film “Rough Stage”, for which they also toured in Palestine in autumn 2015.
For the last five years, I have involved bandoneon into my performances and played Argentinian music in duos with guitarist Martin Lopez Muro (ARG); accordionist Jaak Lutsoja (EST); Martin-Eero Kõressaar (EST); Isabel Bermejo (ESP), Trio Maag (EST) and bigger ensembles - Gran Orquesta Típica OTRA (NL) , Septeto Camaleón (NL) etc.
