The Various Kinds of Piano The piano can be broadly classified into two types: the Vertical or Upright piano and the Horizontal or Grand piano. The distinction is made on the basis of the height of the piano in question and the placement of the strings. The upright piano ranges between 36 to 60 inches is usually sub divided into four types: the spinet, the console, the studio and the upright. The spinet has a height of 36 to 38 inches and a width of 58 inches. It is the smallest of pianos and is good for people living in small spaces. However, it is not usually used for professional playing piano because it has less power and accuracy and but that does not mean that it cannot be used in piano lesson and piano tutorial. The console is slightly bigger. Its height ranges between 40 and 43 inches. This kind of piano comes in various styles and hence can be made to match your furniture. The studio is the piano seen in music schools. (More...) Show video tutorial!
About the Artist
AWOLNATION is an American indie rock band, and is the solo project of Aaron Bruno, formerly of Under the Influence of Giants and Hometown Hero. The band is signed to Red Bull Records, and their first EP, Back from Earth, was released on iTunes on May 18, 2010. AWOLNATION began after Aaron Bruno was approached by Red Bull Records in 2009 asking if he wanted free use of the Red Bull recording studio in Los Angeles, Ca. After a semi-successful career working with major labels but ultimately being disappointed and released without any major hits, he decided it was time to go out on his own and write the songs that he felt he was meant to write. He recorded a few songs in the studio and ultimately signed with the label calling it more of a "partnership" and was allowed to make the recordings that he wanted. Aaron writes all of his songs himself but confides in close friends and family or respected artists for guidance. The name AWOLNATION is derived from Aaron Bruno's high school nickname. In an interview with Kristin Houser of the LA Music Blog, he stated that he "would leave without saying goodbye because it was just easier, so that's where the name Awol came from.
