Hello

I’m a Slovenian-Australian musician and freelance web designer, and I create educational content for accordionists, focusing on Slovenian and Alpine popular folk music.

About me

From an early age my Slovenian background encouraged me to learn popular folk music on accordion (Slovenian: narodnozabavna glasba, German: volkstümliche musik), which is played in the alpine regions of central Europe. Later I learnt to play this style on diatonic button accordion (Slovenian: frajtonerca, German: steirische harmonika), guitar and bass. My goal is to help others learn to play this music, especially in English speaking countries where it is difficult to get face-to-face help.
