A VERY Brief History of the Piano

I love these very short and brief history videos. They’re short, but they pack some really cool history lessons into a few minutes.

First off, we learn that the piano was invented around 1700. Pretty cool.

The piano was invented to play the music with different volumes. If you hit the key hard, the note sounds louder. This made the piano a more versatile instrument.

In the 19th century, the piano took off in popularity with some very famous players. There were various added features throughout the years.

As technology advanced, the piano transformed into a keyboard. Now you can literally hook up your keyboard to your computer, and have some pretty cool software and programs teach you how to play.

Over the last 200 years, there have been some awesome improvements with the piano.
