Accordina method: (Prices: €29.00 + shipping)
The accordina is unknown to the general public even though it is a truly expressive and musical instrument when played by Ludovic Beier !
If Ludovic Beier is a virtuoso jazz accordionist, he also excels on his "signature" accordina ( Marcel Dreux created this model for him). His playing is sometimes reminiscent of Toots Thielemans who invited him in 2006 to share the stage with his musicians and friends such as Herbie Hancock, Ivan Lins or Eliane Elias , on the stage of Carnegie Hall in New York.

The accordina, a "hybrid" instrument between the accordion and the harmonica, has since become Ludovic Beier 's favorite instrument, who has continued to develop and refine his playing, under the influence of Toots Thielemans and his many musical encounters.
With this method, he gives you the benefit of his experience and explains the different approaches to playing the accordina, hence the title!
You can stream the audio examples and the original playbacks that appear in the method (composed and recorded by L. Beier ) on the accordinas marcel Dreux website (you will be asked for the code appearing in the book).
