Fernando Arroyo from Guanajuato, Mexico
Fernando sent this to me, said he was using
the apps to learn about the instrument.
Seven minutes of pure awesomeness on the
Hohner SqueezeBox app for iPad!
The apps are perfect for learning and practicing in your apartment, on a work break, when the kids are asleep, or wherever you are. Wherever you have your mobile device, you can play or practice. Play in headphones while waiting for a meeting, or while riding the bus, train, or plane.
On a recent airline trip to visit my parents, I practiced five-row Chromatic Button Accordion in headphones the whole flight back. There’s no way I could have done that with a real accordion, they would have escorted me off the plane in handcuffs and I’d probably would have ended up featured on CNN!
If you want to learn to play any of these instruments but don’t want to invest a lot of money buying a real one, my apps are an inexpensive way to get started. The skills you acquire from playing the apps transfer to the real instruments.
I know this works from first-hand experience. I learned to play B/C button accordion first from my Hohner Melodeon Pro iPad app before getting a real one, and was very quickly able to play tunes on the real instrument.
My apps will give you a realistic experience of playing these instruments for a fraction of the cost of a real one.
Already play one of these traditional instruments, but want to use your current skills to play hardware or software MIDI synthesizers? Check out my MIDI control surfaces!
I hope you will enjoy playing them as much as I do.
