Hello. I'm just starting off with the piano accordion and I need some tips on practicing more efficiently. Should I focus more on practicing scales, maybe adornos, fingering techiques. Or should I watch tutorials and learn songs and practice full songs. which should I dedicate more time to? I'm at the very basic level right now. Playing 2 notes at a time with the same two fingers.

Focus on the fundamentals more. Learning songs will happen along the way. As you work on different aspects and phrases within the scales, you will start to recognize songs. Always start with the fundamentals first and the their application second. But more importantly, have fun as you learn and play!!!!

Great advice. Also, practicing early on with a metronome will help develop your timing.

Thank you for the great advice. I will get busy with those scales and chords. Any exercises in particular that you guys would recommend?

Change of plans. I bought a Panther. I figured why learn all over again when I decide I want to play the button accordion later on.

I recommend starting with piano style because it is easier since the notes are in sequential order. If you got rid of the piano accordion I recommend getting a kids size electric piano just for learning about theory. The way I learned was by first making sense of notes using a piano since the notes are in order and then just find where those notes are on the accordion.

Thanks peeper. I should have mentioned I played tuba on the keyboard in a band during the whole duranguense fad. So I am familiar with a little basic theory (scales,chords). your advice is really good and what I find myself doing is learning a song on the pa and figuring out what grado of a scale it starts on and transporting that to the button accordion. I can't imagine how hard it must be to start from zero.
