Keyboard & Piano

keys25 Keyboard instruments belong to two basic groups, those that simply trigger or pluck a note like the harpsichord and organ, and those that are responsive to the strength of the musicians touch on the keys like the piano, clavinet and clavichord.

Piano's are built with pedals which sustain or mute notes by moving and stricking soft hammers onto the strings inside the piano which a good player can utilize to create atmosphere and expression.

Organs use a series of buttons along with keys and pedals to create a wide range of sounds, a development also used in the creation of modern keyboard that also combines buttons, switches and keys to produce waveforms and sounds including everything from a Grand Piano to Strings, Brass and complete Drum Kits sounds on one instrument.

Synthesizers, electronic piano's and keyboards are available in a variety of sizes with or without touch sensitive keys and a range of effects, sounds, drum patterns, song styles and some have options for playing full chords by depressing one note.

elton johnA piano is a large, expensive instrument which requires regular tuning so before splashing out a small fortune, beginners should try learning the basics on a small second hand keyboard.  There are also some excellent virtual piano software programs and online virtual piano keyboards for computer users.

All of the electronic options are a boon to players who wish to learn and compose, however, not even the best digital equipment can emulate the true sound of an acoustic grand piano played by an expert.

We have gathered some interesting features for Amateur to Advanced pianists and keyboard players including online lessons, books, articles and resources to play plus links to keyboard and piano manufacturers, part and accessory makers, piano removals companies, available in the Accessories section.
