Brief history of the Piano Keyboard: Grand Piano to Digital Piano

History of the piano: The piano was born during the ancient technological advancement. Hammerd Dalkimer’s had an early stringed instrument made to resonate by hitting the wire.
In the Middle Ages, there were multiple attempts to create the key musical instrument Dalkimar. Clavichord and Harpsichord were well-known in the 18th century. Clavicord strings were struck in various ways, while harpsichord strings were played with bird feathers. After hundreds of years of research into the special techniques of hopscords, the most effective method of making cages, soundbird, bridge and keyboard was invented.
The modern piano is credited with the discovery of Bartolomeo Cristofori (1655-1731) in Padua, Italy, known as the Grand Prince of Tuscany whom the Ferdinand De Medici has been appointed as the Keeper of Instruments. Christophery was a harpsichord expert and experienced in stringed instruments. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Although it is believed that he made the first piano in 1709. The history of the Medici family shows that their family has had a piano since 1700. According to another source, the Medici family has been on a piano since 1797. However, three Christophery pianos that were made in 1720 still survive.

History of Digital Piana:-

History before 1950 AD:

The present-day piano differs from pianoforte (the piano) which is invented by Christopher in 1809. Due to the structural features in Pianoforte, It was so expensive that no one could afford to buy it without an aristocratic and royal family. It takes about a hundred years for it to be readily available to the public. The first symphony of Mozart and Beethoven was written using pianoforte. The Grand Piana we see today was made in the first half of the nineteenth century. During this time, the piano gained popularity as a home instrument for musicians, students, teachers, and even amateur enthusiasts, and it gradually grew.

From 1950 to 1980:

Since the 1920’s, musicians have been trying to figure out how to play the piano aloud. During this time, researchers and scientists drafted an electric piano invented in 1950.
The predecessor of the digital piano, this electric piano did not have electronic instruments.
It was like an electric guitar. It was a simple piano with a pickup. That pickup multiplied the sound power by converting the sound produced by the piano into a signal. But like an ordinary piano, it had strings, hammers, wooden soundboard, ghats, and so on. It gained widespread popularity from the 1950s to the 1960s, and many famous musicians, producers, and pianists, including Ray Charles and Duke, used the electric piano.
Synthesizer technology emerged as a third option for instrumentalists and music lovers in the 1970s. Discovered by Bob Moog, this synthesizer has been instrumental in many transformations in the music world since the 1970s. A synthesizer works on the principle of imitation and it increases the sound power by creating sound waves by imitating the wave generating device.
This independent instrument that we see as a piano (keyboard) only serves as a way to control the synthesizer.

From the 1970s to the present:

 1970s the electric piano was thin and underdeveloped. Musicians continue to try to modernize it by combining it with more versatility and new contexts. Thus a fully digital piano is transformed into an electronic instrument in such a way that the sound or tone of the original piano is as accurate as possible. As a result, digital piano in the 1980’s not only solved sound or vocal problems, but also laid a solid foundation, making it an easy-to-carry, inexpensive, alternative to other musical instruments, one of the newest features in all new pianofortes, An extraordinary musical instrument for the production of great musical sounds.It became a better alternative to the original piano for practice at school and at home. Currently, large organizations have launched research departments to innovate new sound-producing technologies.They are investing a lot of money, labor and talent to innovate in sophisticated and high quality digital piano. The latest additions to digital piano technology are sound sampling and physical modeling.
The next decade is providing exciting advance promises for musicians who rely on digital piano.
