Piano Shop - Grand, Upright, Digital, Steinway - Online
Piano is the general name given to a musical instrument classified as a keyboard, percussion, or string instrument, depending on the system of classification used. The piano produces sound by striking steel strings with felt hammers that immediately rebound allowing the string to continue vibrating at its resonant frequency. These vibrations are transmitted through the bridges to the soundboard, which amplifies them. There are various orientations and technologies used including grand, upright and digital. The Steinway brand is very popular. You can shop online to make your next piano purchase.
The piano is widely used in western music for solo performance, chamber music, and accompaniment. It is also very popular as an aid to composing and rehearsal. A grand piano or an upright is not very portable and often expensive. A digital can be far more portable. Consider taking a Steinway on a trip and you can see the difficulties. Yet it is its versatility and ubiquity has made it among the most familiar of musical instruments.
The word piano is a shortened form of the word pianoforte, which is seldom used except in formal language and derived from the original Italian name for the instrument, gravicèmbalo col piano e forte (literally harpsichord with soft and loud). This refers to the ability of the piano to produce notes at different dynamic levels depending on the speed with which a key is depressed.
