Bob Goldberg/Famous Accordions on SoundBetter

Experienced in many styles; committed to finding the right sound for your project. American Roots Music: Folk, Rock, Blues, Jazz World Music Modern Experimental Music Film and Theater Music Early Childhood and Elementary Music

I will work with you to find the right sound to fit your song or instrumental project, working with written charts or building an arrangement.

I am a composer, multi-instrumentalist and music educator, based in Brooklyn since the 1980s. Having studied piano, electronic music and composition, I took to the accordion in the 1990s, which has become my main performing instrument.

I have written and recorded songs for Disney Channel (The Book of Pooh), MTV and Nickelodeon, and recorded sessions for songwriters, films and theater companies. I have performed and recorded as a member of Washboard Jungle, Le Nozze di Carlo, The Corner Store, and the BAN Radio “Orchestra”. I have a BA from Sarah Lawrence College, an MA from Brooklyn College, and have received grants and commissions from numerous organizations.

Since 2005, I have led the Famous Accordion Orchestra, whose repertoire covers a wide range of musical traditions - Offenbach, Ellington, Copland, Beatles, Marley, Kraftwerk, Brel, Klezmer, Basque, Italian, Zydeco, along with original compositions.

I also am a specialist in early childhood and elementary education, bringing folk, world, and modern music to students in the classroom and on video.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    Bob was a pleasure to work with. He's a talented player, a great communicator, and he turned my project around quickly. Highly recommended!

    Loved Bob’s work! He sent a rough draft to make sure he was headed in the right direction for the song, finished within the timeframe, and offered multiple options for to use.
