  • June 07, 2016 Interesting Alternative for Piano Accordionsts

    If you're learning or teaching piano accordion (PA), you're likely used to the Palmer-Hughes series. While they're good books, and I continue to recommend them, this method presents a compelling alternative that can be used instead (or better yet, in addition as a supplement). The main...

    differences are in the left hand. The fingerings reflect the more modern trend of giving more work to the 5th and 4th fingers, which I prefer. (I often wind up crossing out the fingerings in my student's PH books and writing in my own.) You're playing simple LH melody notes right off the bat, with counterbasses introduced early on. The chord buttons (both major and minor!) only come later. The main downside (besides the price) is that the tunes aren't as interesting or fun overall, in my opinion, as the PH ones. Many tend to sound like exercises more than actual melodies. The fact that it is in French, and that it includes CBA fingerings along with PA fingerings, are very easily gotten used to.

  • January 16, 2012 A Beginner's Point of View

    I was apprehensive about this book as the only French I know is associated fried potatoes. After a few weeks with it I can say the true benefit is the accompanying CD that lets the student hear the exercises. In addition, each page that is cross-referenced to the CD...

    also indicates the proper tempo. When coordinated with a metronome (available for free on the internet) these tools (metronome, CD & required tempo) are very effective. What the book lacks is an index or table of contents. It was quite a while before I figured out that the book included scale and arpeggio exercises. In my opinion as a rank beginner, it should be included along with other study aids one might use in the learning process.

    C system CBA player - Although I don't read French, the book is self explanatory. I bought it searching for a better fingerings for double notes (3rds and 6ths) I was not disappointed - There is a wealth of material here and the fingerings are consistent and worth the study - For...

    me the fingerings are mMuch better than other CBA methods I have used.

    I am a CBA player and although I don't speak French, this book is self explanatory. I bought it because I was not happy with the double note fingerings in Anzhagi and the Cambieri Methods. I am very happy with the fingerings not only for the double notes, but...

    for the chromatic and major and minor scales as well - Galliano gives a number of alternative fingerings that are very helpful. I recommend the book highly.

    Très bon outil de travail pour débutant mais on trouve aussi de très bons exercices de niveau intermédiaire. Belle reliure, belle mise en page. Je considère que c'est un bon achat et un bon complément au cours d'accordéon.
