Personal Description:

I am graduated, friendly, very flexible and tremendous patient accordion teacher. I can offer you lessons for classical, variety, and traditional folk music from Balkan - Southeast Europe (Macedonia, Bulgaria, Serbia). I have experience of teaching children and adults from all ages.

Stefan was born in 1992 in Struga, Macedonia, and started playing the accordion at the age of 7. He studied accordion performance at the Music High School DMU "Todor Skalovski – Tetoec" from 2007 to 2011. He continued his accordion performance studies at the Academy of Music, Dance, and Fine Arts in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, graduating in 2015. In addition to classical and variety music, he also studied Bulgarian folk music.

Since September 2015, he has served as an accordion teacher at the Music School.Throughout his education, he has had regular performances both as a soloist and as a member of chamber ensembles at various concerts, festivals, and competitions. He has also actively participated in judging panels at numerous competitions at the republic, national, and international levels.
His students frequently perform at concerts and important events, achieving numerous accolades at both national and international accordion competitions. Stefan also leads his own band, which specializes in performing Balkan folk music, and has performed at numerous festivals and private parties.

Tutoring Experience:

Since 2015 I am working at state music high school as an accordion teacher. I am teaching online accordion since 2016, where I have more than 25 students actively.

Tutoring Approach:

First at all: I am going to be your teacher all the time, sending videos, providing feedback on your submitted videos, and answering your questions consistently.

Teaching Style

I am an experienced, friendly, and patient accordion teacher. I offer lessons in classical, variety, and traditional folk music from the Balkans and Southeast Europe, including Macedonia, Bulgaria, and Serbia. I have extensive experience teaching both children and adults of all ages.
The content of my didactic program includes:
• Posture improvement
• Finger positioning in songs
• Touch and expression
• Technical optimization, including both generic techniques and specific techniques for the right and left hand
• Proper usage of the bellows
• Agility and technical performance enhancement
• Selection of the best songs to build an impressive repertoire
• Finger-strengthening exercises, and more

My main goals as a teacher are:
• Encourage my students to be independent and creative.
• Establish effective and quality practice habits for my students.
• Teach musical interpretation and analysis.
• Focus on conveying emotions and storytelling through music by emphasizing expression and dynamics.
• Assist students in overcoming stage fright and building confidence during performances in front of an audience.
• Foster student participation in ensemble performances, guiding them to play in synchronization with other musicians.
Feel free to reach out if you're interested in learning the accordion in a supportive and comprehensive learning environment.
