The Accordion
By: Bridget The Accordion: There are several types and sizes of an accordion. Most of them have two parts connected by the bellow, the part that gets scrunched and un-scrunched. The right side of the accordion is the melody side and the left side of the accordion is the bass side. There are four different types of accordions: a. The Piano Accordion: the most popular of the four types which normally has 25 to 41 piano keys and from 12 to 120 keys on the bass keyboard. b. Diatonic Accordion: a very simple accordion that is limited and can only play the notes o the Diatonic scale. c. Chromatic Accordion: there are three to five rows of trebble buttons on a Chromatic Accordion. The right keyboard is usually the Stradella system, one of the various free bass systems. d. Concertina Accordion: a free reed musical instrument that has bellows and buttoms on both ends typically on the sides. How it's Made. What type of music are they used for: The piano accordion is a more straightforward sounding instrument and is used in jazz and rock and roll. However the chromatic ones are mostly used for some more classical pieces

How do they produce the music?

The accordion consists of two reed organs and a collapsible bellow. Expanding and contracting the bellows on each side of the instrument provide air to vibrate the reed organs to produce the sound you hear when listening to an accordion.
Accordion (n.): a portable freely vibrating reed instrument that is used to create music. Inside this instrument are metal reeds, which create sound when air, generated by the movement of the bellows, flows around them and causes them to vibrate. Listen to This Thank You for Exploring the Wonderful
