Education / Training

Shelia started playing the accordion at age 5 and in her teens was privileged to study with Bill Palmer of Palmer and Hughes Music Course fame. She attended University of Texas on a Music Scholarship and opened her own music studio at age 21.

She has developed her own teaching method materials over the years that include special requests – her students request over 20 songs a month that is added to her library of arrangements she has written. Shelia owns So Good Productions that specialized in accordion arrangement and these books and collections (some with professional backtracks) now available for other teachers and students.

Shelia currently is teaching diatonic, chromatic, and piano keyboard accordion and is conducting workshops all over the US to Accordion Clubs and music schools.
