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
Benjamin Scott "Ben" Folds (born September 12, 1966) is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and the former frontman of the alternative rock band Ben Folds Five who now performs as a solo artist and collaborates with many other musicians. Folds became attracted to piano at age nine. His father, a carpenter, brought one home through a barter trade with a customer who was unable to pay. During this time, Folds listened to songs by Elton John and Billy Joel on AM radio, and learned them by ear. During his years at R.J. Reynolds High School in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Folds played in several bands as the pianist, bassist, or drummer. In the late 1980s, Folds (as a bassist) and longtime friend Millard Powers formed the band Majosha. The group released several locally produced records. They played their first gig at Duke University's Battle of the Bands in 1988, and won. They played at bars and fraternity parties, and eventually put out a self-produced EP, which was sold at a few local stores called Party Night: Five Songs About Jesus (1988). The record featured only four songs, with none of them actually being about Jesus. They recorded Shut Up and Listen to Majosha in 1989. It contains, among other tracks, the four songs from Party Night (remixed and/or re-recorded) and what Folds would later record with his own band ("Emaline" and "Video"). At about the same time, they did a dance mix of "Get That Bug" that was released in Japan.
