    The piano The piano Presentation Transcript

    • The Piano
    • There are different kinds of pianos. The biggest, prettiest one is called a grand piano.
    •  
    • Another kind is an upright piano.
    •  
    • A smaller kind of piano is called a spinet piano.
    • Here is what the inside of a grand piano looks like.
    • When you press a piano key, it makes a hammer hit a string. (video)
    • A full piano keyboard has 88 keys!
    • Here are some piano keys.
    • In the middle of the keyboard is a note called Middle C.
    • The other keys have names too— C, D, E, F, G, then A, B, then C again.
    • How many Cs can you find? How many As? How many Fs?
    • You make music with a keyboard by playing the keys.
    • You play the keys with your fingers, of course,
    • with your thumb on Middle C. (That’s #1 in this picture.)
    • The black keys are called sharps and flats. The white keys are called natural notes.
    • The black keys come in sets of two
    • and in sets of three.
    • Do you see the sets of two and three? They go 2, 3, 2, 3, 2, 3…
    • Down at the bottom of a piano are pedals.
