Infographic: The Keeper of the Keys – Meet the Keyboard Family

A short while back we outlined the history behind the invention of the piano with songs to play on the piano appearing shortly thereafter. Now we’ve got a beautiful visual from our friends at California Music Studios who’ve put together a graphic on the keyboard family, providing some history on pianos, playing techniques, and the fundamentals of a piano among other fascinating pieces of trivia.

Keyboard instruments are an important tool in music education, giving students a hands-on, visual means of learning music theory while offering a wide range of unique sounds.

    The Holy Ghost is what keeps us strong and God helps us go through things, but when we play the Piano God plays with us because he gave us that gift to do. So we should use our gifts.
