World Piano Day

World Piano Day

The piano is a well-known instrument for classical music lovers. The piano is a versatile instrument that has been used in concert settings all over the world. Its delicate sound and beautiful resonance have made music come to life for many years. Did you know there is a holiday for pianos? It’s true, there is a holiday dedicated to pianos. Learn more about the history and how to celebrate this wonderful holiday.

World Piano Day was created to honor this amazing instrument that has brought us many joys over the years. It doesn’t matter if you are a pianist or not, it is an enjoyable experience to listen to the music of a professional pianist.

Today is a great opportunity to learn more about the piano. You must be familiar with the keys. The keyboard is the most crucial part of learning. You will notice that the black and white keys run from left-to-right on the keyboard. They do not alternative white-black-white-black. A pattern is actually made up of seven white keys and five black keys. An interval is formed by the beginning of one set and the ending of the next. This is known as an ‘octave’. It is a type or interval. An interval is the musical distance between two sounds.

It is also important to remember that the highest keys are located on the right side and the lowest ones on the left. Every key that you press is half a step higher than the previous one if you start from the left. To make a complete step, you will need to move up or down two steps. These intervals are easy to master if you practice enough. Then, you should try different intervals to hear the difference in sound.

It was a dulcimer (a fretted instrument with three to four strings attached) that led to the invention of the piano. It evolved into the clavichord and the spinet, virginal and clavecin. Finally, it became the gravicembalo in the 15th-century.

Bartolomeo Di Francesco Cristofori invented the harpsichord. The keyboards that activate the strings made the harpsichord the closest precursor to modern-day pianos. The harpsichord evolved further over the next 300-years to become what we now know as the modern piano.

Piano Day began as an idea by the German pianist/composer/producer Nils Frahm. Nils Frahm combines classical piano music and electronic music to create piano music that is unconventional. The holiday was established by Frahm in 2015. Frahm answered “…mostly when Frahm was asked why there is a Piano Day. He said it because the piano and all that surround it, such as musicians, composers and piano builders, tuners and movers, and, most importantly, the listener.

The holiday has grown as more people hold recitals, concerts, lectures, and demonstrations. Pianoday.org is an official website that lists all concerts and events around the globe to celebrate the beauty of piano.

Listen to classical music on your device if you enjoy classical music. A concert at your local theatre is a great way to spend a night out. You can also learn piano at local colleges, or online. Use the hashtag #worldpianoday to share your amazing piano music and get the word out on social media.
