Learning the Bandoneon

There are still not enough bandoneon teachers available. Fortunately the number is increasing and there will be more in the future if you consider the actual number of students. Some bandoneonists do offer personal lessons. You may check the list of Tango and Bandoneon Musicians and search for the note also teacher in the section for your country. There are also some conservatories offering courses for bandoneon. Additionally it is possible to take lessons on-line via webcam.

Recently I was informed about an on-line teaching service. I do not know if it is effective and feedback is appreciated:
