    Hi all,
    It will be soon available on Amazon an adaptation I have made of the well-known F. Beyer piano method ““Preparatory School for Piano”, op. 101. The intent is to have a few beginning exercises to start playing the melodica the “Japanese” way: vertical, with both hands. As we know, playing the melodica in this style means having the left hand reversed thus the need, even for experienced piano players, to re-train the brain in the use of the left hand with mirrored fingerings: the use of simple materials can be of tremendous help in doing so.
    Play Melodica with Both Hands! Volume I
    This publication contains a wonderful short essay by Alan Brinton (yes, “our” Alan), where he presents us with a brief history of the melodica and its playing styles.
    After a brief technical introduction by myself, the book contains the first part of the original book, including the introductory music theory elements and the first 64 exercises. Everything was adapted to be played with a standard 32-keys melodica.
    If enough interest is shown for this first Volume, I will publish a second volume with the reminder of the original book (exercises and pieces in all tonalities).

    You can download a few sample pages from the following link:

    The book will be available in printed form only (no ebook for the moment) at USD/Eur 9.90.
