Can push buttons be used in simple circuits instead of switches?

i want to make something similar to a door bell. the circuit i want to build containing a "buzzer, battery and instead of a switch i want to use a push button". if it is possible to build such a circuit should i connect something to the push button or connect it directly to battery & buzzer.
Update: i meant should i connect the circuit as in the link but by replacing the switch with a push button
