Have You Hugged Your Accordion Today?

  • Make reservations to attend one of the many accordion events taking place around the country each year.

  • Take your accordion in for repair, if it’s been needing some attention.

  • Play for a child.

  • Offer to give someone accordion lessons.

  • Sign up for some “refresher” accordion lessons yourself.

  • If your accordion has been sitting in the closet for a while, take it out and play it.

  • Buy yourself a new accordion.

  • Try out a midi accordion.

  • Learn a new number and memorize it.

  • Make your own “Happy Accordion Month!” greeting card, and send it to someone who needs to be enlightened.

  • Buy a CD or an mp3 file that features the accordion.

  • Play the accordion every day for the entire month of June.
