FOR ACCORDIONISTS OF ALL AGES
THE PERFECT EDUCATIONAL TOOL FOR ALL GRADES.
Lips, author, music professor at the Gnesin Institute for Music Education in Moscow,
bayan-accordion virtuoso, educator, musicologist and one of the most outstanding
bellowed-instrumentalists of our time has written this book for musicians who
seek to improve their performance skills. This very significant handbook provides
practical examples to be applied on a daily basis for the enhancement of performance.|
An easy-to-understand presentation, the book leads the reader step-by-step through the concept of tone creation: keystrokes, bellows control, vibrato and articulation. The author goes into detail about playing technique: composure, notation, fingering and exercises. The student working on technique is encouraged to simultaneously explore aspects of interpretation: analyzing the content as well as applying rules for tempo, rhythm and rubato. Because intense music study usually has concert work as its goal, Lips concludes with an analysis of concert activity: selecting the repertoire and conduct before, during and after the concert.
The accordionist who incorporates these methods into performance will acquire the skills to enhance creativity and the ability to maximize the sound quality of the instrument.
