Play a Song With Me!
I have 88 white keys and 88 black keys, but I'm not a locksmith.
I carry hammers, but I don’t strike nails. I strike strings to make beautiful sounds.
Who am I? I’m a piano.
My father, Bartolomeo Cristofori, created me around the year 1700 in Italy.
I have many versions, now digital, electric and hybrid as well, but the original version is exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
I used to be an expensive luxury, but now I am in many homes.
With me, people can play the widest range of musical notes, more than seven octaves.
My full name “pianoforte” means players can make me sound soft(piano) or loud(forte).
I am an essential member in all genre of music from classical, jazz to popular music.
I am also helpful in teaching music theory, history, and new songs.
Why don't you find some time to play a song with me?
