I play three instruments: the piano, the cello, and the accordion. I'm not really good at any of them, but if I could be a master of one of them I'd choose the accordion.
The accordion is not as popular an instrument as it used to be; not many people play it anymore. But, it's such a fun thing to play! I like it because its keyboard is easier to play than a piano. The keys are shorter and closer together so I don't have to push as hard to make the sounds. My fingers can play more complicated note combinations (like triplets), and zip up and down the board in dramatic glissandos. I don't have to worry about stretching my left hand to reach for the chords; a simple push of a button gets me beautiful major, minor, 7th, and diminished chords.
The accordion is made for dancing . . . waltzes, marches, and polkas. It's so fun to sit there playing and watch what the music does to people! Pretty quick their foot is tapping the floor or they're clapping, stomping, or cheering. Occasionally they jump up and down or start dancing; that's the funnest thing of all! Accordion music makes people smile; it makes them happy! And when my music makes others happy it makes me happy, too.
