The Accordionist's Prayer
    Grant me the musicality to accept the melodies I cannot change,
    The courage to improvise when I can,
    And the wisdom to know the difference!

By creating a safe and caring atmosphere, this group helps its members overcome the debilitating effects of accordion addiction.  Members gain confidence and peace of mind through performing and parading in public, "working the steps" together, and sharing stories of how they got "hooked".

As members of Accordions Anonymous, we have come to understand that we are powerless over our addiction and have made a decision to turn our phrasing and tempo over to the care of a Higher Musical Power.  We believe in progress, not perfection.   Thinking the tune through.  And taking one note at a time.
