A lively and wide-ranging collection of great tunes from all around Eastern Europe, suitable for playing on accordion, but also on all other melodic and harmonic instruments! This collection features traditional dances and tunes from Hungary, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Albania, Serbia, and the Klezmer tradition, along with a new composition by Merima Kljuco. Chord suggestions, background information on the history of the accordion in Eastern European music, and detailed guidance enable you to get the best out of this vibrant music.
Based on 50 years of teaching and performing on the accordion, Mr. Zucco has provided us with a complete and thorough accordion method for children. In this single volume, three levels of clear, easy-to-understand instruction teach music reading and playing from the very beginning, supplemented by original solos and arrangements. Students learn to play by feel and touch rather than depending on sight. Helpful illustrations and photographs are also provided. This method mentions the 120-bass accordion, but focuses on the 12-bass instrument. One of the finest accordion methods available.
Using a Question and Answer format, and by concentrating on the most frequently asked questions, he gives confidence to a developing beginner. All the fundamental skills are covered in this book, from playing first notes and adding bass notes to the function of the air valve and bellows action.
