Output of the TAGRINE METHOD:

MUSIC WITH PLEASURE . Thirty lessons for beginners.

Learning music with pleasure is the method proposed by Nathalie Béra-Tagrine in these volumes intended for young beginner pianists.

Clear and playful collections where the talented musician gives us the advice passed on to her by her mother, Nadia Tagrine, and puts them at the service of a learning technique where the taste for playing is acquired through diligent work and rigorous.

The works - with CD - present a selection of pieces ranging from classical music to jazz, including popular melodies, in order to develop the musical sensitivity of apprentices and lead them to seek out beautiful sound.

Renowned pianist, daughter of Nadia Tagrine, another keyboard virtuoso, Nathalie Béra-Tagrine wants to share her educational knowledge with young people.

It is true that when we have had the chance to meet Vlado Perlemuter, György Sebök, Dimitri Baskirov, among others, we have all the (good) reasons to publish a method!

The first volume of the Tagrine Method "My first years of piano and music theory" carries a credo that should be at the forefront of any piano class :

learn melodious pieces, closely combine musical training and instrumental practice and vary fingerings. (CD included).

Article from PIANISTE magazine n°76.

At first glance, this method seems quite traditional.

In fact, she systematizes the experience of a teacher, who was also a concert artist, but who devoted the greater part of her life to teaching, following the example of her mother, Nadia Tagrine, who contributed so much , for more than twenty years with Roland-Manuel

to make music known and loved in the show “Plaisir de la musique”.

Most of the pieces present in these two volumes were composed or harmonized by the author.

These are models of taste which will surely train the melodic and polyphonic ear of the students.

The volumes are accompanied by two CDs on which we can find all the pieces and which are also a model of interpretation.

You can make really beautiful and good music with a few notes...

Let us add that the systematic side of the method allows, paradoxically, great flexibility in its implementation. This is not the least quality.

Extract from the site

September 2016

{...} Here are the ones that I liked and that I recommend to you for this new school year: the Recreational Pieces for piano by Nathalie Béra-Tagrine. {...}

The 4 volumes of utterly exquisite pieces that I

invites you to discover, register in addition to

his method.

She specifies that these pieces were composed for

your youngest students because it is with pretty melodies that we can help them make rapid progress.

In my opinion, she achieved her objective.

Volume 1 is aimed at average beginners rather than complete beginners.

The pieces (8 measures as a rule) are short but we already learn the chords, eighth notes, sixteenth notes and dotted notes.

Volume 2 gradually integrates new difficulties.

Volume 3 corresponds roughly to the intermediate level (with, in almost all pieces, movements in the left hand) and volume 4 to the advanced level {...}

Each volume implicitly prepares you to discover Satie, Ravel, Debussy or Chopin.

Certain pieces combine the melancholy of Eric Satie and the melodies of Frédéric Chopin.

All these miniature pieces, very accomplished and absolutely exquisite, would be worthy of appearing on the program of a concert or competition.

It is simply impossible to tell you

if I prefer this or that piece because all of them, without

exception, are real little jewels {...}

The reputation of the piano method of Nathalie Béra-Tagrine, who worked alongside Vlado Perlemuter and György Sebök, is obviously well established. These pieces composed by the author of the method complement it opportunely with melodious and well-written pieces. Presentation in large notes and on spaced staves is beneficial for young children. A teacher who has experience and a lot of talent.

Van de Velde - Fun and educational
“Placere et docere” could perhaps be the credo of the four collections of scores, Recreative Pieces, designed by Nathalie Béra-Tagrine. In line with her Tagrine Method - My first years of piano and music theory, which is available in two volumes, the renowned pianist and teacher offers melodious pieces of her composition, allowing you to pleasantly overcome the difficulties of the piano. Five or six in each work, the scores, classified in order of increasing complexity, are accompanied by the technical aspects and interpretations that they work on ("finger substitution", "musicality of the right hand", " work of musicality"). Of remarkable educational quality, these books are perfect for learning the piano.

Pianist n°97 (March-April 2016)

This series of progressive pieces, from the very beginning to a more advanced level, have in common that they constitute both, without saying so, progressive studies, and at the same time are delicious little works admirably composed and harmonized. Without seeming it, different styles of music are offered, which broaden the taste and culture of the students. It is a repertoire of short pieces, but of high quality.

ALLURES, 8 measures for a gesture

Guided by her detailed knowledge of students' needs, Nathalie Béra-Tagrine has signed two new collections.

For beginners, Allures offers 20 miniatures, each reminiscent of an animal to better explain basic techniques, such as staccato playing and wrist rotation.

A fun first step in technical mastery, which is developed in Les Soirées musicales , at a more advanced level. Lively scenes from a storybook emerge, their romantic lyricism giving pride of place to these imaginative compositions.
