Would you buy a Ferrari for someone who has never driven a car before to practice on? The concept of the Toy Accordion is to give a beginner a cheap learning and practice tool to see if they can learn to play the Cajun Accordion. I would rather spend and lose $20 on a toy then $300 to $1000 on something that I find I can not learn to play.
Who said that you can not teach an old dog new tricks? 61 and still learning as I grow older.
