The Piano Accordion – A Father’s Gift For Life
The major influence in Julie’s life was her Ukrainian born father, who played the accordion in Ukraine and Poland, during World War II, entertaining military personnel.
When Julie was 13, her father brought home a small black 80 bass Settimio Soprani Piano Accordion, from his old War friend, and handed it to her, hoping that his musical daughter would be interested.
This changed the course of her life almost instantly and became her ultimate passion. Julie’s love of the accordion turned into an obsession. The desire to learn and excel on the accordion was evident from the outset.
There was no limitation to her musical dream, and Julie sought a professional teacher.
