AccordionAn accordion is a portable keyboard or button based instrument. It is usually a box-shaped instrument with metal reeds made to vibrate by squeezing air from bellows. To make a sound, the bellows are played back and forwards by the player's hands. The notes are chosen through the action of the player's fingers on the buttons or the regular keyboard layout.
