Accordian

AccordionThis instrument is spelt either Accordian or Accordion.

A free Reed instrument. A cousin of the humble Mouth Organ but larger and with Bellows. Best played outdoors.
Invented in the early 19th century, there are two forms, the button accordian or Melodeon and the piano accordian with Keys shown here. The Bass or Chord end (opposite to the melody notes and usually on the left for a right handed player) are always buttons.
