At initial stage, we are just making a group. We have some bigger plan. We promise this group will create some surprises with their magical hand on keyboard. Be with us in the whole journey.

Some information about piano and keyboard:-

* The story of the piano begins in Padua, Italy in 1709, in the shop of a harpsichord maker named Bartolomeo di Francesco Cristofori (1655-1731).

* Many other stringed and keyboard instruments preceded the piano and led to the development of the instrument as we know it today.

* Eventually a stringed instruments with a keyboard evolved in Europe in the 14th century. The earliest of these was a dulcimer, a closed, shallow box over which stretched wires were struck with two wooden hammers. The dulcimer led to the development of the clavichord, which also appeared in the 14th century. These were followed by the spinet, virginal, clavecin, gravicembalo, and finally, the harpsichord in the 15th century.
First exhibited in Florence in 1709, Cristofori’s new instrument was named gravicembalo col piano e forte (roughly “soft and loud keyboard instrument”). Eventually, it was shortened to fortepiano or pianoforte, and finally just piano.

* His earliest surviving instrument dates from 1720 and is on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

* Despite many improvements during the past 300 years, it is truly astonishing to observe how similar Cristofori’s instruments are to the modern piano of today.
