Making the Piano Accessible to Everyone
If you look back through history, it is painstakingly apparent that there was a time when playing the piano was something only rich people did. The families of the European bourgeoisie would have a piano or harpsichord (depending on how far back you go) in their drawing room ready to be played by the girls of the family to entertain highly esteemed guests. The middle class sometimes had a nice instrument, but the working class definitely didn’t have a look in and were deprived of a musical education.
The Situation Today
As time has gone on, pianos have become more and more accessible to everyone. In the 1900s, most schools were furnished with an upright instrument (although often it was old and dilapidated) and a piano teacher. Today, we have come a long way and now the piano is one of the most accessible instruments for families of all backgrounds.
Many old acoustic pianos have been given a new lease of life by being repainted and put on a street corner. These pianos often generate interest with children who then decide they want piano lessons. Luckily, due to amazing advances in the digital world, electronic instruments do not have to be expensive!
