  • Creativity, good taste, harmonically/melodically correct.
  • Music with a sensible degree of difficulty, such that any additional difficulty would not improve the overall sound of the arrangement.
  • Guaranteed audience appeal and playing enjoyment.
  • Utilizing the orchestral capabilities of the accordion.
  • Music that will excite and challenge intermediate through professional.
