The Alabama Accordion Association is hosting “FREE” concerts to showcase what the accordion is capable of, and offering FREE introductory lessons to encourage students to learn to play the accordion.  Any age is welcome, elementary students to adults. If you or your child would be interested in free introductory lessons, please contact the Alabama Accordion Association and we

will connect you with an instructor in your area.

Contact Craig Funderburg at or call 205-317-8663.


Why selection the accordion as your instrument of choice?  The accordion is portable, so you can take it with you. The accordion is an orchestra in a box playing both melody and harmony. It plays all genres of music from French, Italian, Irish, Tango, Big Band, Zydeco, to Classical as well as Jazz.  All over the world, except in the United States, the accordion is considered a legitimate concert instrument, often playing as the solo instrument with the symphony orchestra playing in the background.


            The Alabama Accordionists Association meets quarterly in Clanton, AL.  About once a year, the Club hosts a concert featuring a premier artist.  Past concerts have included Maestro Friedrich Lips (Moscow), Stas Venglevski (Wisconsin), four-time World Champion Alexander Sevastin (Belarus), and three-time World Champion Cory Pesaturo (New England Conservatory, Massachusetts).
