Loved the class! I had taken guitar classes previously from someone else and they didn't stick due to lack of practice. Thought I'd start with the piano lessons here first and then switch over to guitar afterwards.

My daughter starts her first piano lesson here when she was nearly 4, I was unsure if it is too young an age to start music lesson. To my surprise, Teacher Sue is such a bomb! She knows how to motivate the toddler so well that every student in such young age can follow her instruction and eager to play in front of others. Im very happy to see my daughter playing piano happily and confidently!

All the staffs are very friendly and have lots of patience with my 2 kids who are beginners. Only second sessions and I feel they have learned a lot. Instructor Shanshan is kind and funny and everything you would hope for in an instructor for a 7 year-old boy & 9 year-old girl. My kids are excited and looking forward to the next session. They practice and do the assignments immediately after the session. I will definitely sign up for more lessons and could hardly wait to hear them play the first song on the piano. Highly recommended!

All of the staff was very friendly! Store was well organized and the two classes I had were well structured as well. Saw many students that were young children but there were also some adults there with me. Didn't feel too out of place. After my lessons, I decided to sign up for another month to see how it goes. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

I think this class is absolutely awesome. I grew up playing music and wish I was taught this way. It’s playful and fun so you don’t get frustrated and quit (like most of us). Early on they especially emphasized ear training and after 8 months of classes, my kid can play by ear and with both hands!! I can’t even do that after years of piano classes. I highly recommend for any with young kids!

Great music class for little kids. Teacher Zhuang is very experienced with little ones. She has the magic to keep them focused for most part of the class. Compared to other similar classes we tried before, this is the most structured music education system. It lays a good foundation for the future if the kids are going to take more advanced music lessons.

It's just for fun, not for learning music or keyboard seriously.

Inside a Piano: How Vibrations Create Wagner

Though its notes may last for only half a second, the piano’s design is more than 300 years old. Check out Groupon’s guide to the instrument’s inner workings to learn about the parts you’ll be controlling.

Even beyond the black and white of its keys, the piano is filled with contradictions. Its name derives from pianoforte, a hybrid of Italian words meaning “soft” and “loud.” Despite the more than 200 strings that produce its sound, symphony orchestras classify the piano as a percussion instrument. Outside, it is large and elegant, its sound swelling through the concert hall. Inside, it is delicate and complicated—the result of almost 9,000 moving parts working in tandem to amplify an almost silent vibration.

When the player presses a piano key, it triggers a tiny wooden hammer covered in felt to spring up and hit a set of tensioned strings made of hard steel wire. These strings then vibrate at a certain frequency, which causes a large, flat wooden board within the piano casing to vibrate at the same frequency, converting the mechanical energy into a full, discernible sound. If the player releases the key, a felt block called a damper presses against the string to absorb the vibration and silence the note before it wakes the audience asleep in the balcony. Each string must be finely tightened to assume the correct frequency, which creates a lot of tension: in modern pianos, the total strings sustain an average of 20 tons of pressure, which requires a massive iron plate bolted to a heavy wooden frame to support.

Despite the simple concept, a piano’s mechanism presents several complicated problems. For instance, the hammer must not only retreat from the string immediately, so as not to dampen the vibration, but also refrain from bouncing back and hitting it again. The solutions to the various technical issues came all at once—the result of the ingenuity of Bartolomeo Cristofori, an instrument maker appointed to the Grand Prince of Tuscany’s court in 1688. No later than 1700, Cristofori arrived at his concept for an instrument dubbed “arpi cimbalo del piano e’ forte.” Cristofori’s design was so innovative and complex that subsequent inventors failed to find any easier alternative, and eventually the prototype pianoforte became the world standard.
