Accordion Renaissance is active in working with public and private organizations, such as schools, music clubs, as well as parents and students, who would gain appreciation for the accordion by learning about its history, development, functioning capabilities and musical diversity. In addition, our goal is to increase the number of youth playing accordion. We are especially focused on the important the parents/caregivers play in the success of their child with musical endeavors.

Education is offered to students, teachers, and audiences through creative special events such as programs that deliver hands-on accordion training. Another goal is to remove old stereotypes that view the accordion solely as an ethnic or folk instrument. Today the accordion is seen and heard in contemporary pop styles, classical, jazz as well as light classical repertoire and is routinely incorporated into advertisements. The accordion is now integrated into traditional music styles all over the world.
