PianoMan

Hi music fans,

I have got special news for everybody here. Piano is one instrument that has caught us spell bound with its sound from time immemorial. Piano is an instrument that few have mastered and Mozart is one person who made the piano very popular in the 1960s. That piano is a string instrument is a popular misconception, not many know that it is really a percussion instrument by the way it works on the inside. The piano later not only was known as a music instrument but also as a social status symbol. To have a Grand Piano seated at the center of your drawing room attracts the income tax officials !
The piano is a musical instrument played by means of a keyboard that produces sound by striking steel strings with felt hammers. The hammers immediately rebound allowing the strings to continue vibrating at their resonant frequencies. These vibrations are transmitted through a bridge to a sound board that amplifies them.
The piano, ever since, was known to be a matter of possession for prestige. Playing the piano is not something that comes easy to anyone and everyone. It calls for a high degree of penchant for liking and appreciation of music and also deft skills in understanding music theory and also reading of the musical notation. And, of course, mastering the piano demands superior co-ordination skills of the upper limbs that is the most common limiting factor for many wannabe pianists. A Pianist can find himself garnered with a decent profession at a night club or a Jazz club where the piano is a very important instrument that makes up for most of the melody along with the blowing fleet of instruments. The piano forms the backbone of Jazz melody and also blues and other popular forms of Latin and American modern music. It is still used in today's more popular modern Jazz and also in Metal Jazz. By the 1820s, the center of innovation had shifted to Paris, where the √Črard firm manufactured pianos used by Chopin and Liszt. In 1821, Sebastien invented the double escapement action, which permitted a note to be repeated even if the key had not yet risen to its maximum vertical position. This facilitated rapid playing. When the invention became public, the double escapement action gradually became standard in grand pianos, and is still incorporated into all grand pianos currently produced. The grand piano is a huge instrument and is not usually portable. It is sometimes even hailed as a legacy that is carried over from one generation to the next. The tall vertically strung upright grand was arranged with the soundboard and bridges perpendicular to keys, and above them so that the strings did not extend to the floor. Diagonally strung Giraffe, pyramid and lyre pianos employed this principle in more evocatively shaped cases. The term was later revived by many manufacturers for advertising purposes.With so many royalties up its sleeve, the piano does not come at a very friendly price to the common man. Hence, buying a piano is a very tedious task when it comes to finding the right place and the right set of keys that suit your liking. You can find the best antique upright pianos
