Accordion Lessons for Seniors and Beginners

Although it may seem like the accordion is a complicated instrument that’s difficult to play, it’s actually one of the easier instruments to learn once you get familiar with a few of the basics. For beginners, not being able to clearly see the keys due to the way the instrument is held is probably the most challenging aspect of learning to play. The accordion is believed to have been invented in Berlin, in 1822, by Friedrich Buschmann, although there are some experts who dispute this. The instrument is widely played in popular music throughout parts of Latin America, while in Europe and North America, the accordion is mostly heard in polkas and folk music. There are multiple variations of the accordion, such as the Irish button accordion which can be heard in many traditional Irish songs.
