Beginners of all ages can start their journey to a lifetime of musical enjoyment. Beginning with the fundamentals, you will learn about the parts of the accordion, buying an accordion, preparing the instrument for use, and getting acquainted with standard musical notation. You will then learn to use your left and right hands in the proper ways, playing different notes, chords, and songs, all while continuing to increase your knowledge of reading and understanding standard musical notation. You will learn to play in an array of musical styles, including folk songs, Waltzes, Bluegrass, Polka, and more. You will also learn how to play with a group of other musicians. Upon completion of the book, you will be able to play the accordion in a variety of musical styles, read and understand music, improvise, and be ready to play in a band. Included is a DVD that contains video lessons, MP3s, and TNT 2 software for the most effective practice, plus codes to access all of the corresponding media online for streaming or downloading.
