WATCH BRUCE (Xiaoyu) FINAL CONCERTO
When you begin looking for a new or pre-owned piano, the number of options can be intimidating. Owning a piano is an investment, and you want to make sure you pick the right model.
Before entering a piano store, knowing what size of piano your home can accommodate is important. Walking in with measurements and constraints is an important first step. If you’re low on space, consider looking at upright pianos.
The piano is a stringed keyboard instrument in which the strings are struck by wooden hammers that are coated with a softer material. It is played using a keyboard, which is a row of keys that the performer presses down or strikes with the fingers and thumbs of both hands to cause the hammers to strike the strings. It was invented in Italy by Bartolomeo Cristofori around the year 1700.
