Some well known keyboard players include Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, and Debussy. A popular keyboard that is still used today is the organ. The organ ranges in size from a small closet to an entire church. An organ has from two to eight manuals that can have completely different sounds. Air is pushed through pipes to make the many sounds that can be played on a pipe organ. (Raeburn 11) he most known keyboard, the piano, was improved in this era from the harpsichord. The piano has eighty-eight keys with seven octaves plus a few keys. According to “Musical”, sound is made by hammers that strike the strings to vibrate them (“Musical”). The harpsichord was the precursor to the piano. Instead of hitting the strings, the harpsichord would pluck them to make a more metallic sound. The spinet was a small upright piano that is similar to the harpsichord. Another instrument is the virginal. Like the spinet, it is also similar to the harpsichord (“Elizabethan“). Keyboards were and still are the most known class of instrument. This era gave us variations and new keyboards to use and
At last, the pianoforte was born. The pianoforte means soft and loud. The name describes the sound of the instrument. It can be soft- piano or loud- forte depending on how hard you hit the keys. Bartolomeo Cristofori created it in 1709. When he became angry and was playing the harpsichord harder, he realized that the instrument didn’t respond and become louder. Since he wanted something that could do this, he invented the pianoforte, which is now just
He is unable to play because he will give himself away so we instead watch his fingers move across the air above the piano’s keys as whilst the sound plays in his head and too the viewer. Throughout the film we also see Szpilman pretending to play the piano as he taps his finger across his legs. It is moments such as these that help to maintain Szpilman’s willingness to survive by keeping silent, but also how piano gives fills him with the hope that is instrumental in his survival. In other scenes such as when a German officer asks Szpilman to play piano for him, and allows him to live because of his immense talent we begin to realise that Szpilman’s hope – music, does not only help him to survive mentally, but also physically as he can share the gift that he has to others. It is also important to note that Polanski only music by the Polish composer, Chopin is used throughout ‘The Pianist’. His sad and evocative music brings upon a sad mood, yet one with a hint of hope and with this, the director can more vividly express his ideas a way that dialogue or action cannot.
Initially, development of content starts from the fascination by the sound of piano to basic learning from cousin and then getting the technical knowledge of the piano.

To begin with, the first piano was created in the early 1700’s, by a man named Bartolomeo di Francesco Cristofori. However, the sounds of the strings being plucked, bowed or struck, originated as early as the prehistoric times. The Piano was initially named gravicembalo col piano e forte, and eventually called the fortepiano or pianoforte. Today, one can visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City to see one of Cristofori’s enduring pianos from the early 1720’s.
Piano plays big role in piano lesson. The piano is more than just a symbol of slavery though it’s also representing the strength of the Charles family. “I am not thinking about Berniece’s” berniece’s used to remember as her family because her family died because of the piano, but boy Willie does not care. “Doaker then tells the story of the piano 's history too because doaker wants boy Willie to understand the importance of piano.” Importance of piano start Generations earlier, Sutter, their family 's slave-owner, broke up a family by selling a mother and child to pay for the piano which he bought for his wife as an anniversary present. The wife was happy with the piano but missed having the slaves, so Sutter had that family 's husband/father (who was a carpenter and too valuable to
I recorded the drums (played by my pal N’Dugu) with as tight and powerful a drum sound as I could. Of course I put N’Dugu’s drum set on my plywood drum platform. Also at this time, I had a special kick drum cover made that covers the entire front of the kick drum. There’s a slot in the cover with a zipper, where the mic fits through. When the kick drum mic is in place, in the slot in my drum cover, I zip the opening tight around the mic. I brought in my good friend George Massenburg’s spectacular sounding,
For the recording of “Our Greatest Fear” by Marianne Williamson I used the Zoom R8 recorder pared with the Wharfedale DM3, supercardiod dynamic mic. What I learned during this recording segment was that not all mics work best for certain applications. Because of this mic having a supercardiod pattern, meaning the polar patterns is narrow in the front, speaking closely to the mic was a must. The great thing was that most of the background noise was low for the most part. The recording was done in my room with a sheet in front of the mic for sound deadening. If I had to record again this mic would not be my first choice.
I’ve always looked at different objects and never connected to them. It wasn’t until I had received a keyboard that I realized that an object could become something more valuable then just inanimate. A piano has become this sentimental thing to me. Playing the piano with my mother has formed a strong bond between us. Every time I play the piano, it makes the bond between my mother and I stronger. Playing and listening to the piano is a comforting outlet. The music is relaxing. It also has taught me something new. Learning to play the piano takes time and practice. You have to learn about its functions to understand how it works. A piano is considered a musical instrument. Nothing special to it besides that fact that it
Years later, I had inherited a piano from my musician uncle that he no longer needed. After that
The Piano Lesson is a Southern Gothic play in which the living, as well as the dead, have a strong connection to the piano. The piano has a tragic origin that dates back generations. The piano was originally obtained by Robert Sutter who traded slaves for the instrument because he could not afford to purchase it outright. The piano was meant to be a gift for his wife, who coincidentally grew weary of the instrument and began to miss her slaves. In an attempt to quell her depression, Robert Sutter commissioned that the slaves' portraits be engraved in the piano; in addition to the slaves that were traded, the woodcarver also included their families and family histories. Because of the ties to slavery between the piano, the Sutters, and the Charles family, Berniece and Boy Charles came to believe that as long as the Sutters owned the piano, they would continue to own the Charles'. Due to this belief, the Charles' become obsessed with obtaining and owning the piano. During the course of trying to get the piano from the Sutters, the Charles' sacrificed much of themselves and caused many deaths.

One of the most common musical instruments in many homes is the piano; and most people have the opportunity for even a few lessons in their youth. However, despite the simplicity of its lines and keys (88 keys), 2-3 pedals on the modern piano, and either upright (vertical) or grand style (horizontal), the physics of the piano are both interesting and complex.
