The piano is known as the “King of the Instruments” because its range goes from the lowest note that you can play on a double-bassoon to the highest note that you can play on a piccolo. The single instrument covers a full orchestral range!
There are 18 million non-professional piano players in the United States alone, and over 10 million pianos! This is can be a huge benefit when it comes to studying music at a higher level – no matter which instrument is your principal area of study, most programs will ask you to have a year of piano lessons under your belt as well.
A concert grand piano is 8′ 11″ and weighs over 1400 pounds. This is why everyone looks so tiny when they are playing one! This size also helps the instrument to produce its incredible sound quality.
Even though piano keys are referred to as the “ivories”, they have not been made out of ivory since the 1940s to protect endangered resources. Now they are made out of plastic instead.
One of the best piano brands in the world is considered to be the Steinway piano. The Steinway family has been making pianos since 1853 and a Steinway Grand Piano can cost well over $100, 000.
