New Exciting and Satisfying Jamming! Returning to Traditional Accordion Music
Max Frauenthal and his assistant Roy Helsing have developed two sessions on jamming. Their combined packet of music is good for any setting including house concerts, parties, restaurants, senior citizen facilities, festivals, street musicians, etc.
Why? As Roy stated in his bio: "I am interested in jamming because I live in a very isolated area and rarely get the opportunity to play with others. Those sessions are most enjoyable for me when there is music available because trying to just join in by ear is not my skill set."
Albreski Fun Band Music
Band director Mr. Dick Albreski requests that "Fun Band" members download, print, and practice all the parts. That helps the player to understand the music and train others to increase their talent in "hearing other parts" while performing in a band. Dick may assign various parts during the practice session to produce a balanced sound.
