Accordions Worldwide
53 Kitchener Road Milford
New Zealand


Accordions Worldwide began with a meeting called by Harley Jones, Vice-President of the New Zealand Accordion Association, in April 1996. The purpose of this meeting was to discuss the potential possibilities of the internet and how it might be used to best assist the development and popularity of the accordion. Also considered was the future needs of accordion education, entertainment, associations and manufacturers in conjunction with the development of the internet..

Several weekly meetings followed, after which everyone there began a two month study of the internet with access to the internet provided free to assist their study. Not able to be present at these meetings, but in close liaison with Harley Jones, was then American Accordionists' Association President Faithe Deffner, who discussed the possibilities of the internet with a number of USA accordionists.

These studies highlighted that improved communications between accordionists was one area where the internet could provide an extremely valuable service. In a world becoming ever smaller, with greater ease of international travel, freely available information about every facet of the accordion was considered a high priority.
