The accordion is one of the most gentle and at the same time dynamic instruments. Its sound can be nostalgic as well as rhythmic and this is what makes it an instrument that can perform many types of music in a wide repertoire, from classical music pieces to valse, tango, jazz, pop, rock, but also folk, popular and light-popular. The accordion is very similar to the piano since both are composed of keys however; the accordion has both the “polyphony” and the pulsation given to it by the air that is blown through the “bellows”. In accordion lessons the student can choose by himself which musical genre he wants to practice thanks to the versatility of the specific instrument.
