enry Doktorski majored in music education (along with piano performance) in college and received certification as a public school music teacher. Since then he has taught music classes -- as a graduate assistant -- for the Duquesne University School of Music. He has also taught professionally for the West Virginia public school system (grades K-12).
He presently serves on the faculty of The City Music Center at Duquesne University as instructor of accordion. In addition, he offers private lessons for piano, organ, accordion, composition and theory students.
Mr. Doktorski said, "I believe that musicians should not only perform, but should also teach. In this way their art will be passed on to the next generation for the enrichment of all humanity."
He is presently accepting a limited number of serious students for classical accordion studies. Lessons are conducted by speaker phone, unless of course the student lives close enough to drive to Oakdale Pennsylvania. For more information, see Study Accordion with Henry Doktorski.
Doktorski also serves as a professional chess instructor and currently conducts Chess For Kids classes at the North Fayette Township Community Center and the Bethel Park Community Center. See Chess Instructor.
