Well today I thought it hard to look past an article I read about the famous makers of handmade pianos since 1853, Steinway & Sons. This company has been known to stay straight down the line when it comes to tradition but these days, you simply have to keep up with the jones’s especially with the fast pace of the tech world and music streaming.
The famous piano maker is announcing the first major invention in a very long time. Some say it’s been fifty years or more. It’s called SPIRIO. Now I think I mentioned how I loved to hear my sister play the piano in my first blog. We have been trying to get her back on the keys for some time now. The name of the app reminds me of her loving husband who has a strong Italian accent, even after all these years. I can just see his face storming out of his office a Business Accountants Perth WA asking where that noise is coming from and how it’s distracting his clients. He never did have an appreciation for this wonderful instrument
Steinway have taken this pretty seriously and have been developing this for a number of years now. i imagine it will come in handy should the pianist in a live orchestra needs to take a bathroom break. I can’t help think of a B grade horror movie when the keys a moving and sound screaming with nobody sitting in the chair.
We will follow this one very closely and report back soon.
Hello and welcome to our little blog site on playing perfect piano.
I have been a fan of the piano for years now and still to this very day struggle to put a few chords together and make a decent sound. The truly amazing part about the piano is you can learn when you are 4 years old right up until you too old stretch your fingers across the keys.
My sister played the piano for years and I often sat and watched her play, waiting for the call to join in the” heart and soul” tune. A merger role, but it made me feel good and felt like I had my small taste of this wonderful instrument. Like almost everything today, technology has taken a grip on society and the art of learning and mastering the piano has become easier. I wouldn’t say it’s taken a shine of it but it does sadden me a bit to hear my 8 year jump on the iPad and belt out a tune with really no idea more than it “sounds good dad”
I doubt anyone will ever grow old of siting back and watching a master play the grand piano with a 50 piece orchestra behind them but we can’t sit back and think that technology will only get better and the true art form of playing a perfect piano will slowly disappear.
This blog is on everything piano. Playing it perfectly, lessons, iPad, technology and just the wonderful sound. So be sure to check in once and a while and see what we have posted. If it’s about a piano, you may just find it – right here.
