Today, piano has developed into two main categories. The piano we see now evolves from the clavichord, which has gone through five or six hundred years of continuous evolution.
There are two kinds of modern piano: the triangular piano and the vertical piano.
Triangle piano, also known as horizontal piano, varies in size from four feet to 15 feet. Its characteristics are large volume, pure and plump sound quality than vertical piano, beautiful shape and boldness. But it covers a large area and is expensive.
In addition to these two categories, piano models are also divided. There are 110, 113, 115, 116, 118, 120, 122, 126 and 130 piano models in the current international popular standards. They are coded from the ground to the height, such as 120 or 1.20 meters. The larger the model, the higher the body, the longer the strings, and the larger the volume. The same is true of the triangle piano.
UP refers to the vertical piano, GP refers to the horizontal (triangular) piano.
A vertical piano is smaller than 1.15 meters, 1.15-1.2 meters is medium-sized, 1.2-1.35 meters is large, the family piano should choose 1.2 meters medium-sized piano is better because the accuracy stability of the miniature piano and the sense of playing hand are poor.
Medium-sized piano occupies no more space in the living room than small piano, but a little higher. Under special circumstances, large vertical piano or triangle piano can be selected for professional needs or for the needs of the indoor environment.
As with any other musical instrument, the piano may be played from written music, by ear, or through improvisation. Piano technique evolved during the transition from harpsichord and clavichord to fortepiano playing and continued through the development of the modern piano.
Pianos are heavy and powerful, yet delicate instruments. Over the years, professional piano movers have developed special techniques for transporting both grands and uprights, which prevent damage to the case and to the piano's mechanical elements.
With the advancement of technology, many new era pianos have appeared. Use a computer keyboard, mouse or touch screen to play a virtual piano keyboard. Such as a hand-rolled piano, which is cheap and easy to carry.
