The book The wonderful World of the Accordion is the result of my many years of experience at education. My main idea throughout its making was: How to immerse the wonderful world of the accordion into children’s imagination, and how to master a technical or musical challenge and turn it into fun and playing with the instrument? Starting from the notion that a child’s first encounter with the accordion and the child’s impression after the first classes are crucial to both the child’s attitude towards the instrument and the forming of a young musical personality, my intention was for this book to be a link between the world of children and the world of music. From the very beginning all musical notions are accompanied by imaginative drawings, whose purpose is me- thodical and didactic: spark greater interest with the student, tease the child’s imagination, strengthen the desire for playing music, and assist with meeting all the technical, musical and interpretative requirements. Apart from the didactic exercises, this textbook also introduces many nursery rhymes, known folk songs (Croatian, American, French, and others), some examples of foreign compositions for the accordion, and some piano compositions adapted for the accordion. My intention was for the student to get to know not only music literature and accordion playing techniques, but also some basic notions from music theory: rhythm, dynamic, tempo, scales, notations etc.) This textbook is ap- propriate for all accordion beginners, and, since it deals with all elements and demands set by the curriculum for the first year of primary school, it is recommended for that age. To all those who will be mastering the accordion through The Wonderful World of the Accordion I wish a lot of success, as well as a lot of fun with the instrument. I hope you will overcome all obstacles with ease and joy, and use the accordion and this book to enrich your musical world. Finally, to all my dear colleagues – accordion teachers – who will be using this book, I wish as spontane- ous and creative a contact with students as possible. Let this textbook serve as a means of achieving the best pos- sible results in your teaching work; your insight and suggestions will be valuable and most welcome.
