Piano

The piano was originally called the pianoforte because of its ability to play notes both quietly (piano) and loudly (forte). Pianos have an entire orchestral range in one instrument. It goes from the lowest note you can play on a double-bassoon to the highest note you can play on a piccolo. The piano can be considered both a string instrument and a percussion instrument. Playing the piano sharpens fine motor skills, improves dexterity and hand-eye coordination. Learning how to play the piano betters your ability to meet challenges in all walks of life. As you look forward to being able to play a song, you stay motivated, learn patience, and increase your perseverance, and studying piano has also been proven to improve memory. Piano music is very versatile, and can bring joy to many people in so many different forms. Virtuoso pianist Leopold Godowsky said: “The piano as a medium for expression is a whole world by itself. No other instrument can fill or replace its own say in the world of emotion, sentiment, poetry, imagery and fancy.”
