Boris Matueswitch arranged about a dozen or so Christmas carols. I have one of his handwritten manuscripts which have notated using Musescore to make it a little more readable. Students find it easier to learn when playing a piece of music they are familiar with. Being able to sing a piece helps learn. For example, almost everyone knows Silent Night. In the Key of C, the chording isn't too difficult to learn. Attached are two versions of the carol. One simpler version is the melody line with some double stops and a simple C chord. The other is the Matueswitch arrangement. Other of his carol arrangements offer lessons in use of drones and playing in octaves. Enjoy! And Happy Holidays. SILENT NIGHT 2 versions.pdf
In the September (fall) issue of Concertina World Magazine is a supplemental issue by Eric Matusewitch on the history of the Matusewitch Family and their musical prowess on the English Concertina and Piano Accordion. Great stuff and Eric has outdone himself on anecdotal history of his family and the music they played. A great look into a most influential musical family of the 20th century. Not to be missed. rss
