The History of the Piano
The first stringed instrument with a keyboard wasn't actually a piano, it was a dulcimer, a closed, shallow box over which stretched wires were struck with two wooden hammers. In fact, there were many instruments that led to the invention of the piano. For example, the spinet, virginal, clavecin, gravicembalo, and finally, the harpsichord were all invented before the piano was invented.
Finally, in 1709, the first piano was created and displayed in Florence, Italy by Bartolomeo di Francesco Cristofori.
The Instrument
A piano is made of many different materials some of which is wood and or string or metal. However there are only three major parts that is in a piano, the soundboard, the keys, and the
casing. The casing of the piano is usually wood but
can be metal, the soundboard is made of wood and
the strings can be made of steel. The keys are mostly
wood. The best type of wood a person can use to
create a piano is Spruce Wood.
The Pedals
I love the piano because it is capable of playing amazing music. Did you know that the piano is able to play at least 88 different notes?
At the bottom of all pianos are either three or two pedals. From left to right, the pedals are called the damper pedal, the sostuneto pedal, and the sustain pedal. The sostuneto pedal on some pianos is sometimes excluded. The damper pedal makes a note quieter. The sostuneto pedal makes notes on the lower half of the piano last longer. The sustain pedal makes any note last longer.
