The last of this season’s interesting and informative accordion masterclasses at the Royal Academy of Music before the summer recess.  This month sees the visit of Bjarke Mogensen who teaches accordion at the Royal Danish Conservatoire, where Royal Academy of Music accordion professor studined himself under Mogens Ellegard.

This, as ever, is the perfect opportunity for teachers of accordion to go along and see visiting professors from conservatoires from all over the world work with the accordion students at the Royal Academy of Music.  It is always fascinating to see how different teachers present a variety of ideas to the students and bring out different characteristics in their playing.
