Accordion History

Your patience is appreciated as we continue to expand our site. Accordion history is coming soon. Meanwhile, please check out the other pages on our site from the main menu.

Accordions have a bellows with many folds; another consistent feature is a keyboard with from five to 50 keys. Accordions are unique because they may have a keyboard similar to that of a piano—with the familiar white and black keys—or they may have several rows of round button keys, as do the other instruments in the accordion family.
