Piano- not crazy, but paraphysic!
Piano is as easy as pie!

Piano isn't as young as it seems.
Parts and Pieces
In this photo, the piano hammers are hitting the keys.
The Grand piano is the biggest, and has a large lid that can stay open if you want it, instead of holding it manually. It has three petals- the first to make the sound smaller, second to hold one note so you can switch to a different location without having to hold the notes entirely. The last petal is used to hold all the notes together, so it seems like you are holding all the notes.
Upright pianos also have lids that you can open but the lid can't hold itself up. The petals are the same as a grand piano, but the only difference is the middle petal- it just quiets it. It can hold itself down, too.
Keyboards' keys are lighter than normal upright or grand pianos. Most people say switching to a real piano is harder to press. This reason is because real piano keys are actually using hammers and real strings, so it is much heavier. You can control the volume with a knob. Also, these keyboards sometimes have built in petals, or just have one petal plugged in to the keyboard you can use.
"If something seems too easy, you're doing it right. In piano, pain indicates you are doing something wrong" says David Nevue
