For Jeanette Dyremose, the Accordion was always the chosen instrument. The academies of music, however, did not yet offer educational opportunities for the
Accordion. The organ being the closest possible instrument, Jeanette Dyremose opted for an education on this instrument, graduating in 1970 from the Royal Danish Academy of Music as an Organ player. Following her graduation, she studied Accordion playing, pedagogics, and ensemble instruction in Germany, Poland and the USA.

In 1977, she founded The Danish Accordion Ensemble, and in 1978 she founded The Danish Accordion Association; she is also founder of The Accordion Centre in Copenhagen, the largest music school of Denmark specializing in the Accordion.
