I#m Klaus

Post by KlausHinz »

Dear Ronen, Dears from the community,
I’m Klaus a new member; please find some information about me below.
I’m German and already an “elder” accordion student who found the love to the accordion again.
As a young boy my parents asked me to learn play an instrument. First I learned the flute later the accordion. I did so several years, then as often during the live other things were more important.
Middle aged I started again and bought a Hohner accordion. Did so again some time, forget again.
Now, I’m retired and regain the love to the accordion. As I stay in China this time –also because of the Covid-19 situation in Germany- I bought an accordion here again, 72 Bass.
I first started studying with new books, I bought during a Germany trip. Recommandable:
Akkordeon Workshop 1 and 2, Martina Schumeckers, Holzschuh Verlag VHR 1761 in German language!
So, I tried to learn the basics again; left side, right side, playing songs from the sheet music.
It’s going on quite well.
Some time ago I found your videos on Youtube. “What a new experience for playing the accordion”!
Learning by ear – trials and arpeggios – 15 minutes practice – playing songs without sheet music and so on.
I appreciate these things a lot. A new start (again) for me playing this wonderful instrument.
I hope the membership will help me to make progress. I also like to share my knowledge with the community. I’m very interested in musical theory like circle of fifth and special chords.
My favourites at the moment: Old German (Comedian Harmonists/1928…) and American songs (Strangers in the Night, Moon River) and my new love: Blues (Summertime Blues, St. Louis Blues).
If I need help, I‘m glad to contact you.
Kind regards
Klaus Hinz

Hallo Klaus! This is Ulrike from Germany, too.
What you wrote is almost exactly my own experience. Martina Schumeckers book is wonderful, but I want to learn playing more free, as Ronen demonstrates it so many times. I profit a lot from Ronens lessons and performances and from the whole community - so welcome on board!
