Grand & Upright Pianos

The piano has become the worlds most recognised musical instrument, it was invented in Italy by Bartolomeo Cristofori in the 1700s as the exact year is uncertain. A Piano works by strings being struck by hammers and is played using a keyboard. The word piano is a shortened form of pianoforte, an Italian term for the early 1700s versions of the instrument. The Italian musical terms piano and forte indicate "soft" and "loud" respectively, in this context referring to the variations in volume (i.e., loudness) produced in response to a pianist's touch or pressure on the keys. The first fortepianos in the 1700s had a quieter sound and smaller dynamic range.

An acoustic piano has two variations, the Upright Piano (which has strings stretched horizontally) and the grand piano(which has strings stretched vertically). usually has a protective wooden case surrounding the soundboard and metal strings, which are strung under great tension on a heavy metal frame.
