The Ardmore Accordion Academy is a wide-ranging movement to advance accordion artistry through learning, performance and community.

Based out of Ardmore and seeking a physical space, the Ardmore Accordion Academy believes the accordion can return to prominence by encouraging people from all walks of life to use the accordion as a tool with which to navigate life’s journey.

Founded by accordionist Joe Petrucci in 2013 and inspired by his own accordion adventure, the Ardmore Accordion Academy offers dynamic lessons and artfully arranged accordion performances at affordable prices along the Main Line and throughout Greater Philadelphia.

Key to the Ardmore Accordion Academy’s success is the strength and prowess of its community, which engages in progressive accordion discussion and performance.

On our website we provide accordion news and resources, accordion event and performance information and accordion videos, recordings and images.
