    I’m interested in learning to play the accordion, but don’t know where to start. Which type of accordion should I start with? I would have to teach myself, so is it a difficult instrument to learn to play? Are there any particular things I should keep in mind before beginning to learn? Any info would be appreciated.

  4. Mark M says:

    I have a music assignment due tomorrow, and two questions about the piano accordion are:
    What genre is this instrument used in?
    Where does it fit into its genre?
    I’m not sure about the answers, especially for the last question.
    Any help would be very much appreciated!

  5. Alun J says:

    is it the cost? is it the portability or the sound, or is it the skill required to play it?

  6. MentallyCryppled says:

    This morning I bought an accordion from a flea market.
    The brand is Excelsior. It has twenty-seven buttons on the side, and 15 keys.
    I’m trying to learn about it, and figure out just what kind it is, because it seems fairly simplistic compared to the other accordions I’ve seen online and such.
    Does anybody have any idea about anything about this accordion?
