Kyle from Australia

Post by Kyle V »

Hi all!
I'm Kyle and I'm from Adelaide, Australia. I'm almost 18 years. I have always listened to a lot of music, and sung a lot, and was in our primary school choir for 3 years, which was the highlight of those school days. Encouraged by my mum and my German grandmother, I took weekly accordion lessons from a local teacher, Mrs Pearce. That was when I was 9 years. She used the Palmer-Hughes accordion course books to teach me. After 2 solid years of accordion learning with her, I took a break for 5 years. Then last year I got out my accordion again and realized how rusty I had become...
From watching Ronen on Youtube I am inspired and want to learn how to play by ear and to improvise.
This year I have begun my Youtube channel called Kyle Vance Music. If you have time please come over and see my accordion videos. Here is the link to my hardest piece yet - an Irish tune:

I am also posting playing some German folksongs with my grandma, which she remembers from her childhood. I also dabble on the keyboards and have played drums for the last four years.
I am looking forward to seeing how this goes, it's a really great idea Ronen, well done!!

Hi and nice to meet you Kyle! Just to let you know, your video won't play imbedded (on this site), at least for me. You may have to adjust a setting on YouTube.

Keep up the good work!

Hi Tom, a quick update. When I clicked on Watch this video on YouTube it connected to the right clip - on my computer, at least! However, you are right that it doesn't play on this site and I will have to change a setting for that.

Yes, it worked that way for me too, and that's how I watched you play. I don't know why it doesn't play on this site. I'm not a youtube expert, maybe there is an "embed, or not-embed" setting?

Nice to meet you, Kyle! That video of you playing along to your grandmother's singing is heartwarming :)
Looks like you have a lot of the basics down. Happy to help you along with your journey to playing by ear and improvisation.
