Dick Albreski: The accordion and Dick Albreski are almost synonymous. Since the age of six, Dick has played this magical instrument. It has become a very integral part of his life. His love of the instrument comes alive when Dick applies his fingers to the keyboard. With smooth articulation and dynamics as required, Dick will take simple melodies and transform them into memorable classics. His music will transcend into the audience where he works to become part of them. His experience has taught him how to judge and respond to all audiences. His love of ethnic music is evident in all of his performances. Growing up on the shores of Lake Erie gave him a cultural background that lived to enjoy their ethnic roots. This feeling continues to become stronger as new opportunities arise.
Dick is comfortable playing solo or with a group. His talent has allowed him to play at many weddings, dances, restaurants, social clubs, and conventions, anywhere an accordion was or is needed. He is also comfortable doing accordion workshops.
The acoustic accordion will always be his “main squeeze”, however; today he does play the midi-accordion to enhance the acoustic sound. He programs a balance that allows the acoustic accordion to be the predominant sound and the midi, an added value. This allows him to play his music with a true accordion presentation. Dick not only plays the accordion, but also repairs and teaches the instrument as well. You could say he knows the instrument from the inside out.
Dick will please you with his interpretive ethnic style and allow you to enjoy his music in a pleasant presentation. He has played for decades and will continue to share his gift with you in years to come.

Then the other participants will be invited to comment on the performance, offering positive encouragement and possible suggestions for improvement.
Participation in this workshop will be limited to 8-10 musicians. Skill level? The ability to hold an accordion.
