As an international musical organization, the mission of the Accordionists and Teachers Guild (ATG) International, is to promote, sustain, and create visibility/viability for the accordion in its many forms through stellar teaching paradigms, competitive and non-competitive performance opportunities (both solo and ensemble accordion and/or integration with other instruments); resulting in the development of students, performers, and composers with consistently high levels of artistry, able to compete with any other instrument in any venue on any level in the large universe of music.

In this quest, support and camaraderie with the Confédération Internationale des Accordéonistes (CIA) world accordion association, as well as global manufacturers and publishers is essential.

Our goal is not only to achieve these successes with currently active accordionists and artists, but to nurture, develop, and grow subsequent generations of aspiring accordionists to continue these successes into the foreseeable future on this great instrument.
