Welcome to my website! I am a experienced freelance accordionist, saxophonist, composer and arranger, and I work in all musical genres.
I have had great sucess in composing music for saxophone and write for accordion and other instruments too, for a full list of my compositions please click here.
If you would like advice on how to write for accordion or for any bookings or inquiries, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will be happy to help.
I often create my own projects including music I have written or arranged, some of which you can find here.
Anyone who thinks of the accordion as just a crude ‘squeeze box’ to accompany boozy singalongs, or a noise-generator for Red Army ensembles, or the musical equivalent of a bottle of French Dressing, really must hear Street’s playing: it is phenomenal….” - Paul Serotsky
