I started taking accordion lessons last month and so far its uber fun! Although its hard to discipline myself to practice everyday I do enjoy it and hope I can stick with it despite my crazy life schedule. I chose the accordion because I used to take piano lessons (only about 6 months worth) and when I moved to Seattle from So Cal I couldn’t fit my full size keyboard in my tiny studio so I sold it. The accordion was a compact unusual instrument that first caught my attention when I was traveling in Paris and saw street performers playing them. I noticed that it had a small keyboard on it and thought it might be a neat instrument to try out. So far so cool!

So a long time ago I tried taking piano lessons since my mom had inherited my great grandmother’s piano. But that didn’t last with my mom having migraines. So years later I thought I would try the guitar – everyone seems to play and its pretty portable – but it just didn’t seem to click with me. Having no nails probably didn’t help either. So a few years after that I picked up piano again but unfortunately due to many circumstances, I had to give it up. I really enjoyed the piano and would like to someday pick it up again. For now, I am starting to become interested in the accordion. Its compact, piano-like and peppy. I figure it might be something I could dig. Now the only challenge is finding an accordion on my non-existent budget.
