How Are We Different in the Industry?

An accordion is a versatile instrument used in many cultures across the globe. It is entertaining, portable and you can play all kinds of music with it. Although it is a widely used instrument, most music stores do not have very much experience with them. That’s why at Tempo Trend Music, we make sure that you get the best possible service for your beloved instrument along with the right information from our specialists.

We have one of the finest accordion instructors at our music school, Jelena, who is currently getting her PHD in accordions. Come, join our accordion lessons and enjoy learning the art of playing the accordion.


We have accordions of all makes, models and style at our store, and we know how to repair them professionally. Our experts can advise people about which accordions would be the right one for them based on the tuning, size and music they want to play.

  • Dry tuning: Classical or dry tuning is used more for classical, contemporary or orchestral type playing.
  • Wet tuning: Musette or wet tuning is what the European and Latin American's typically love to play and hear. They love it because of the little bit of vibrato that it creates. It is because of this special kind of tuning that accordions are still alive today. The Musette sound evokes lots of emotion in people that grew up in a community where accordion was the main folk instrument, which made them want to dance and to sing.
  • Size: Playing a specific type of accordion also depends on the age of a person. People who used to play accordions in their 50s and 60s, and are in their 70s and 80s now, cannot handle the big heavy ones. They want a smaller, lighter one, so they can continue to keep playing. Playing the accordion uses both side of your brain which is beneficial to the health of your brain as you age.

Beautiful and Perfect Accordions

“I bought an accordion from these guys at the Accordion Festival in Cotati. The accordion was a beautiful full-size black Excelsior 120-bass. It's a simple model with 2/1 reeds. It has worked perfectly for the last 5 years and sounds amazing. It was $500. It worked out far better than I could have expected.”
