Deconstructing the Accordion

The behaviour, psychological states, and memory retention of Alzheimer patients are of particular interest to me; my father suffered from this disease.  Music played a vital role in his life.  My father shared a love for music and enjoyed singing along to familiar songs. My father introduced me to the accordion at a very young age. He enrolled me in lessons and performances.  After many years, I grew frustrated with the accordion and quit my studies.  As an adult, I reflect on my adolescent experiences . I am intrigued by the complexity of the accordion, and now have a new appreciation for the instrument. 

Deconstructing the Accordion was part of the 2016 Resident Artist Exhibition , In Production at the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga & the Holcim Gallery (Milton Centre for the Arts) Milton, Ontario.
