John Thompson Teachers


Lawrence, Kansas


John Thompson has been playing the accordion for thirty-four years. He studied at the Marsh Accordion Studio from 1968 until 1978 when he came to the University of Kansas to study tuba with Scott Watson. His love for the accordion (and at the request of local accordion master Arch Jamison), soon found John and his wife Corrie establishing the Kaw Valley Accordion Club in Lawrence. When not heading this dedicated club or teaching at the Americana Music Academy, you can find John playing with the Don Lipovac Accordion Orchestra in Kansas City as well as performing solo and with other enthusiasts in the Lawrence area.
