The piano is a musical string and percussion instrument utilized in classical and contemporary music genres. Invented around the year 1700, the piano draws inspiration from the harpsichord and the clavichord. A piano has a minimum of 88 keys; 52 white or natural keys and 36 black or accidental keys. While most pianos are grand or baby grand pianos, there are also smaller versions such as upright pianos, keyboards, and spinets. Heard in a variety of both classical and contemporary music genres, pianos are famously used in the music of composers and artists like Mozart, Queen, Elton John, and countless more. Pianos are often found in residential living rooms, hotel lobbies, restaurants, and concert halls.

How many keys are on a piano?

There are 88 keys on a modern acoustical piano; 52 white keys and 36 black keys. Electric pianos may have less keys than this depending.

How do you tune a piano?

Tuning a piano involves using a tuning lever to adjust the tension of the strings. An electronic chromatic tuner can be used as a reference of how the notes should sound according to the tone it hears from the piano. Lastly, a mute is a tool used to mute strings not being tuned. Focus should begin on the middle octave and lead to comparing octaves.

How long does it take to learn piano?

Learning melodies and the basics can be done in a few weeks time, but reaching an advanced level can take up to ten years or more. It is entirely dependent on how well one wishes to play (level of achievement), amount of time put into practice, and the instructor if one seeks outside help.
