Piano Education Just For Kids


Known as “The King of Instruments”, the piano is an exciting instrument to learn to play. It was invented by a man named Bartolomeo Cristofori in Florence, Italy around the year 1698. He was a craftsman who repaired harpsichords, and the early piano he invented was an attempt to improve on that instrument. He wanted to make a version of the harpsichord that was able to be played both softly and loudly, and he called his early piano the piano-forte, which means “softly and loudly” in Italian. These early pianos were a little different from modern pianos, and they were so expensive that only royalty and the very rich could afford them. It wasn’t until the 19th century that pianos came to resemble the instrument we know today and become more affordable so that more people could enjoy owning one. But why learn to play the piano?
