my daughters are taking group class and private class in Melody piano school. The teachers are very nice and experienced, we learn a lot from here. The group class is very useful to help children keep the interest in piano and also help them make a smooth transition to private class. I would highly recommend Melody piano if anyone wants to try.

It has been a pretty enriching experience for my kid here to learn basics of piano and now he started enjoying it while playing piano. I would definitely recommend anyone to try this academy if your kid loves music and you want him/her to learn piano.

Highly recommend teacher Melody’s class - engaging, fun and lively. It has the right mix of homework, classwork. It does get expensive without coupon but the class is great for my 5 year old.

My son and daughter go to this music school for 7 years. Melody Academy of Music is one of the best music school in the bay area. The teaching environment is engaging, professional, and productive. Ms. Melody and all of her staff are friendly and creative; Ms. Melody helps build up the confidence of children so they are able to compete and perform in community events, recitals, and local competitions, but she also makes sure she paces the students so it is appropriate and they are still enjoying their music journey. Ms. Melody's priority is 100% her students and making sure they're still having fun, while building a lasting impact on them. She is dedicated to her students and establishes connections with them; I highly recommend Melody Academy of Music!

I got good deal on Groupon. Price was much less than original. The teachers are very nice and kid friendly. They make the whole learning experience fun for kids. They ask all accompanying parents to participate too. My son was very comfortable in the class and felt at home. Teacher Rebecca is very nice and have good humor. Best music education to start with for your little ones in best price.

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.
