There are two main types of piano: the grand piano and the upright piano. The grand piano offers better sound and more precise key control, making it the preferred choice when space and budget allow.
The grand piano is also considered a necessity in venues hosting skilled pianists.
The upright piano is more commonly used due to its smaller size and lower cost.
When the keyboard is pressed, the tightened strings inside are struck by coated wooden hammers.
The vibrations are transmitted through a bridge to a soundboard that amplifies the sound by coupling the acoustic energy to the air.
When the key is released, a damper stops the string’s vibration, ending the sound.
