Just as with any other instrument, if you learn and practise the piano it is an extremely rewarding experience. The piano is a fantastic instrument, I think one of the best things about it is that you can play more than one note at a time, unlike many instruments. This allows you to bang out tunes to their full potential without needing an accompaniment. I have been playing the piano for six years and I have enjoyed it from my very first lesson. Obviously the more you learn and the higher the standard you reach, the more interesting the pieces become and the more flexibility you have to play what you want to. For example, recently I have been buying lots of ... Read the complete review

I'm a pianist. But not in public. Only to those whom I can trust not to laugh, or at least not obviously, when I play. I've got to Grade 7 ABRSM, which is pretty good. I also play the violin to Grade 7 ABRSM so I have something to compare against. I began playing the piano whe I was about 10, which makes it 8 years I've been playing. The first 4 or 5 were long, slow, boring and annoying. You look at the music, play the notes one at a time and think 'I'm never gonna get to the end'. But you do. All it takes is practise. Mmmm. A nice cliché. But it is true. Many people give up before they've really got going. One of the best and worst ... Read the complete review

I've bought loads of Yamaha products (keyboards mainly) and I don't think I'd have chosen any other make. Plus working in a music shop means HUUUUGE discounts on what I want! And I know what pianos/digital pianos I'd love to get my hands on when my student debts are paid off. So before you read this I think I'd better warn you that I work in a music shop during the holidays - selling Yamaha Keyboards/Pianos etc. BUT PLEEEAAASE DONT ACCUSE ME OF PLUGGING THEIR PRODUCTS - cus they aren't paying me for writing this! (I have a couple of comments about plugging the shop I work in on my opinion of Chappell of Bond Street although I wasn't ... Read the complete review

This review is all about the wonderful instrument the piano. As I do not have a keyboard or synth then I cannot really say much about them. I love my piano and I hope this review helps you understand a bit more about why pianos are so great. ----- What is a piano? A piano is a large musical instrument that is played by using your hands to tap notes and your feet to press pedals. ----- How does a piano work? The mechanism of a piano is very simple. When a key is pressed it will activate a hammer which will in turn strike a string which creates the tune. The strings vibrate freely because a ... Read the complete review

The Piano [Background: Played well, the piano is one of the greatest musical instruments known to man, and is capable of sending shivers down your spine if it happens to be under the control of a skilled pianist] I am not particularly musically minded. I have never played a musical instrument and I do not read music at all well. I used to sing in the school choir many years ago, and I have even been known to flex my vocal tones once in a while at the Karaoke, after a few drinks that is. However, I believe that I know good music when I hear it, and nothing is more capable of capturing my attention than the powerful music that emanates from a ... Read the complete review
