Title: Akordeón – tradície a perspektívy
Author: Anna Fintová

Abstract: In the 1970s accordion was one of the most popular musical instruments both in Slovakia and Bohemia. The first lessons in playing the accordion started at the Bratislava music school in the season 1949/1950 and before long the instrument penetrated all three Slovak conservatories (in Bratislava, Žilina and Košice). Since 1971 the conservatory graduates have been given an opportunity to continue their studies of accordion playing at the Academy of Music and Performing Arts. At that time the accordion faced an enormous boom not only in pedagogical domain, but also in performance.
The modern era of information technologies and consumer society has influenced also the demand in music education. The interest in playing the accordion at basic artistic schools and at conservatories has decreased. Presently a new model of a digital V-accordion (virtual accordion) has got on the market, possessing a number of innovative acoustic and technical options. Our opinion is that these qualities may help the instrument to range among the popular instruments of pupils, students or teachers and concert artists soon.
