Short Piano History

Before we begin our piano course, take a moment to learn a very short piano history of keyboard instruments. You have begun a journey that will last the rest of your lifetime.You are also participating in a very important cultural aspect from around the world which has been going on for centuries.

Did you know that pianos in some form have been around for over 500 years? Some of the first instruments of this kind were called clavichords. They had a very light, metallic sound because the small hand-pounded ‘hammers’ were made of very light weight metal-like material.

These hammers struck strings of varying lengths to create different tones or pitches.

The next cousin to the clavichord was the harpsichord invented by Cristofori in Italy around 1450 A.D. This keyboard instrument had a mechanism in it called the plecktrum which ‘plucked’ the strings and produced a slightly stronger sound than its predecessor.

Whether you are playing an acoustic instrument, which is the closest relative to the history just mentioned, or an electronic keyboard, you are now participating in a centuries old musical art form.
