I'm new to this forum and to the concertina community and need some advice.
A bit of background: I am a choral conductor and pianist. I'm the music director at a church in Dallas, Texas. I read music fluently and play by ear a bit but not am not gifted this way.
In recent years I've discovered I enjoy a good stout in an Irish pub so have become curious about ITM (Irish Traditional Music) and that lead to doing some research on the concertina.
I understand in broad terms the different key arrangements and the terms unisonoric/bisonoric of the English, Anglo and Duet systems.
Here is my question:
as a pianist and music reader will I make faster progress with which system? What do you think will be more intuitive and therefore I will be able to manage the learning curve in order to make music?
I'm eager to hear your responses.
