-------and His Canadian Orchestra

Hello and Welcome to my Website - I reside in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, Canada, where I was born and raised. I took an early interest in the accordion at the age of 8 years and by the time I was 10, I played well enough to convince my parents that I was seriously in love with the accordion and they agreed to send me for formal lessons. I had a good teacher - Mr. Nino DiPasquo - and studied accordion and theory with him for 5 years. Through my late teens and until about age 25 I played little but still enjoyed listening and playing whenever I did. I became serious again at about age 26 and studied on my own for the next 10 years. I began playing out at small venues and was contacted by the local Italian Calabrese Choir as they needed an accordion player for accompaniment. I have enjoyed playing with the choir ever since as we do various venues throughout the City including retirement homes, Malls, summer festivals and even weddings. I have with me a wonderful guitar player Mr. Santo Spina and a very talented accordion player Lou Buffone. We play dinner dances and senior nights and enjoy meeting new friends along the way. In the last few years I found a wonderful website - Accordion Freedom Forum - and have met many friends there. Steve Navoyosky and Ernesto Aiello are 2 who have encouraged and helped me with this site. Feel free to look around in the photos and listen to the music samples. Also if you wish to comment or ask a question please do so in the postings.

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy this site - Sincerely, Philip Braido
