Transcript of The Piano



Eureka!
Faith B. found awesome news in the World Book.
Ludwig Van Beethoven
, the famous
pianist
, got to take lessons and play for
Mozart
in
1787
.
Beethoven
also met
Count Ferdinand Waldstein
. He became Beethoven's lifelong friend who helped him with his
career
. Interesting news, huh? I never knew that!
Compare and contrast
Question and Answer
Free write
The
dulcimer, clavichord, and harpsichord
were all put together to make today's piano. The
clavichord and harpsichord
were things that you could
play separate
. The harpsichord and clavichord were developed (made) by the
Europeans
during the
1300's and 1400's
. They were one of the first string instruments that included a keyboard. The
dulcimer
was
most likely
invented in the middle East during the ancient times.We're not sure. I hope you liked these
quick facts
about the
dulcimer, clavichord, and harpsichord!

The upright piano and the electric piano have finally been compared!
Differences for electric piano-
usually used for
jazz and rock
. The
most popular
type of electric piano has
no strings
. Instead of strings, the sound is made by electrical means.
Differences for upright piano-
sometimes called
vertical pianos
. They take up
less floor space
and have a
poorer sound
than the
Grand pianos
.
Similarities-
they both have
at least 54 keys
. They both
produce sound
. They both have a
keyboard
, and they have the word "
piano
" in their name. Interesting...

Description
The piano is a
musical instrument
. The piano is put into the
string instrument category
because it has strings inside of it. It makes sound by the
little hammer/mallets striking the string
in front of it. The piano was developed into a piano by
three things
. Or in other words, the piano was made up by three things. It was the
dulcimer
,
clavichord
, and
harpsichord
. Finally the piano was made!
Cause and Effect
(Cause) The full name of the piano is
"Gravicembalo col piano e forte"
.
Bartomeo Cristofori
named it that. (Effect) People called it that. (Cause) When people started to get
lazy
, (Effect) then the piano's
full name
changed to
piano forte
. (Cause) Since people got very
lazy
and sick of saying
piano forte
, (Effect) they started to call it the
piano
. This is why we call the piano "
piano
" today.

The Great Comparison
There can be many
problems
with your piano at times, but there's always a solution!
A conflict
from your piano is that it needs to get tuned
every once in a while
. A
solution
for that is you can hire someone to come tune it. There is also a problem with that. To get your piano tuned can
cost very much
. Don't
frown
because there is a
solution
for that, too! You can
learn how to tune a piano yourself!

World Books
Addy Kralich just asked a very interesting question...
"How does the piano make a sound?"
Here is the answer to that.
When you
press down a key
on the keyboard, a
little mallet
or hammer
strikes
the string in front of it. The key is
connected to the mallet
.
Of course the
strings vibrate
, so the vibrations make
sound
.
Many keys can be pressed at a time. That's how you
hear or play
a song on the piano.
First, make
five lines
for your
staff.
Second, draw a
treble,

bass, or alto clef.
Third, write the
sharps and flats
in your
key
.
Fourth, write the
time signature
that suits your piece.
Fifth, write the
notes
for your piece.
Sixth, make the
measures
fit the
time signature.
Seventh, at the
end of your piece
, draw a
double bar line.
That's it! You made your piece!

Research Topic and Question
paragraph
What is the history of the piano?
I chose piano as my topic because it was one of my hobbies that I could easily research. I am also very interested in the history and how the piano makes sound. I also chose it to be my topic because all my other hobbies were actually small activities. I've learned a lot of information from researching this topic, and now I'm glad I picked "The Piano" as my research project.
