It’s a lot more than just pianos!

We’ll follow the story of the musical keyboard,from the ancient Greeks all the way to synthesizers, examining music for many different types— clavichords, harpsichords, fortepianos, organs, harmoniums, accordions, dulcimers, cimbaloms, melodicas, and mallet instruments from Java to jazz. This is a large and interesting family!
