Short Pictorial and Musical History of the Piano

One of the ladies on our committee for the planning of a piano festival next spring sent me the link to this short clip with pictures and music documenting the “Parentage of the Piano.”

I actually got to see some of these instruments in person this summer when I visited the National Music Museum in Vermillion, South Dakota. Lots of fascinating history! Students always love hearing little tidbits about the piano’s history and its predecessors, and I find that it is incredibly helpful to them as they learn music from the various style periods. This is a perfect length video to show during a lesson or group class!
