Piano is one of the most versatile musical instruments. We can hear it in all sorts of settings, from classical to popular music. Pianists can perform solo recitals, but we can also hear them accompanying soloist, both instrumentalists and singers. Pianos also have a special place in ensembles and orchestras and in jazz combos. And then there’s teaching. Piano lessons are among the most sought-after of all music lessons.

The Instrument

The piano is a remarkable invention and is sometimes even referred to as as the king of instruments. Due to its versatility, composers use it as a tool to help them write music, choir directors use them to help them work with singers, and most places of worship incorporate them into their services. The modern piano has 88 keys (some even a few more), but that was not always the case. In fact, the piano as we know it today is a fairly recent invention, dating back to the 1860s.
