Reply To: Improving the perception of the melodica


I think this is a really interesting and important discussion. Ill soon be handing in my masters research on this subject along with pieces of music showing how expressive the melodica can be as an instrument (including notation showing specific techniques).

In the UK there is also a grade syllabus which includes the melodica but only up to grade 3. My aim this year is to get involved with the syllabus and expand it if possible. Compositions for the melodica on the syllabus are not specific to the instrument though sadly. You could pick up the grade pieces and play them on violin or flute.

Id like to hear peoples thoughts on improving the perception of the melodica…
