DID YOU KNOW

A standard piano can have upwards of 12000 moving parts. Each string of a piano holds approximately 168 pounds of tension, making the total tension of a standard piano with 236 strings a whopping 18 tons. Though the piano is a stringed instrument, it is considered to be a percussion instrument because of the mode of sound making, where the strings are struck and not plucked. That is why, in a typical symphonic orchestra set-up, the piano is positioned in the percussion section. Among all the keyboard instruments, the piano is arguably the most popular. It’s cousin, the pipe organ, dubbed by Mozart as the “king of instruments,” preceded the piano by centuries. It is believed to be invented in Greece in the 3rd century BC, while the piano was not invented until the 1700s. Its invention is credited to Bartolomeo Cristofori, an Italian maker of musical instruments. Cristofori wanted to call the instrument “arpicembalo,” which literally translates to “harp-harpsichord.” The piano got its name by accident, as a truncation of the phrase “che fa’ il piano, e il forte,” which is a reference to the ability of the piano to make soft and loud sounds. In Italian, the word “piano” means soft, with “pianissimo” as its superlative form.

    "This app is really living up to his name!! I took piano classes when I was a kid but when I grew up I totally forgot all the keys that I learned so I tried to download this app to restore my knowledge and surprising it really works! It helped me to quickly learn the keys again for our presentation."

    "First, the piano sound is realistic, and that's sometimes all one wants. Further, the app can be used as a teaching tool. There are quite a few ways the app can provide instruction, either through exercises or song analysis. The ability to record and share songs is a very novel feature as well. "

    "This game is a pretty fun piano app. It lets you battle against other players which is cool but the song selection isn't great. Most of the songs have to be paid for, so unless you wanna spend the money to buy them the game gets boring and repetitive after awhile."

    "It's apparently a mediocre learning tool, and it's able to record and play back your songs. I don't understand why it needs to record your songs though; it really should just redo the timing and placement of the keys you push."

    "This app seems almost too good to be true with its abilities and incredible features, such as being able to modify pre-programmed MIDI instruments. Any negative complaints involve a snobbishness from trained musicians, such as tempos not being correctly stated or piano sounds being off-key. The sounds are digital! This is not an analog instrument!"
