    • The piano is a very old instrument. It originated around 1700 in Florence, Italy. Before the piano there was the harpsichord, but it was different.
    • The first keyboard instrument was developed in 250 B.C. It was the oldest ancestor of the organ. The organ is also a different variation of the piano.
    • The started with a harp. People had to pluck the strings to get the sound out. Then it turned into the harpsichord which looked like a piano, but it plucked the keys instead of hitting them.
    • The piano is a percussion instrument. That is because hammers hit the strings to make a sound. An instrument needs to be hit to make a sound for it to be a percussion instrument. The drum is also a percussion instrument.
    • Mozart was a very famous composer and piano player. He was also one of the first people to compose for the piano. He was a prodigy which means abnormally good at something. He composed a lot of well-known songs you know today.
