Gary Dahl is widely known as a virtuoso accordionist as well as a composer, arranger, recording artist and music educator, with an extensive background in music theory, composition and harmony.

Gary has now developed an impressive body of work including hundreds of individual arrangements and more than a dozen books currently in publication by Mel Bay Publications.

As a recognized teacher, Gary provides specialized training for all levels of students. Gary's students have won national and state competitions as well as achieving professional status. Lessons are available via computer MP3 for students worldwide.

Gary currently performs as a single for private functions. The Gary Dahl trio plus vocalist performed regularly at private clubs, hotels and the lounge circuit from 1960 through 1991. Gary is a graduate of the University of Washington specializing in composition and theory and is a former commercial corporate pilot, flight instructor and corporate sales manager.

Numerous requests from students and friends searching for HIGH LEVEL PROFESSIONAL ACCORDION ARRANGEMENTS inspired Gary Dahl to create a library over the last 15 years with the following goals:

- Creativity, good taste, harmonically/melodically correct.
- Music with a sensible degree of difficulty, such that any additional difficulty   would not improve the overall sound of the arrangement.
- Guaranteed audience appeal and playing enjoyment.
- Utilizing the orchestral capabilities of the accordion.
- Music that will excite and challenge intermediate through professional. See   page 2 for .pdf samples

LESSONS via mp3: Why not take real accordion lessons from one of the few remaining qualified teachers? Why not discover your full potential? You only live once...why waste your opportunity and never experience confident, advanced playing skills from amateur teachers. Your lessons will be an exciting and rewarding experience that features fast track advancement. Sadly, there are very few qualified accordion teachers and most likely not in your area. I am one of the very few teachers that can teach all styles accurately...and, I wrote the books! (see page two) All of my published arrangements are free to students. There are far too many published junk arrangements that can actually hurt a student’s progress by enforcing harmony errors and inaccurate style awareness. Learning from professionally creative and musically correct music will motivate you and your listeners while teaching competent musicianship. E-mail: garydahlmusic@msn.com for more information. Skype? You are locked into an inconvenient schedule! MP3 Lessons: Less expensive crystal clear recordings and much more!

Testimonial by Armand Dion 7-20-07 (short version) I have recently returned to the accordion and couldn’t find a local teacher. Then I found Gary Dahl’s web site and the impressive mp3 system. I have never been happier with my progress and my playing ability is starting to inspire standing ovations! We are 2000 miles apart but Gary’s system is very easy to use and is actually more efficient and more fun than any one on one lesson... plus, you get Gary Dahl’s expertise from 50 years of teaching, professional performance and publishing notoriety.
