Day 74: Creativity..

Hello again audience, today I would write about creativity! I would like to consider myself to be quite creative and also to have a good imagination.  I used to be quite musical but I gave it up for stupid reasons.. I used to play the saxophone but I gave it up before I really got a chance to get started properly! Today's blog question is are you creative? and can you play an instrument! ?

 I will soon be setting home for London and soon after that I will be back home in Manchester for exams! so I hope you can understand that I may miss a few blog posts! As I am also running low on pictures! so we will see how it goes! thank you for reading today and I will see if I have time to post tomorrow!

Now some random facts!

The piano is a musical instrument played by means of a keyboard. It is one of the most popular instruments in the world. Widely used in classical music for solo performances, ensemble use, chamber music and accompaniment, the piano is also very popular as an aid to composing and rehearsal. Although not portable and often expensive, the piano's versatility and ubiquity have made it one of the world's most familiar musical instruments. Pressing a key on the piano's keyboard causes a felt-covered hammer to strike steel strings. The hammers rebound, allowing the strings to continue vibrating at their resonant frequency. These vibrations are transmitted through a bridge to a sounding board that more efficiently couples the acoustic energy to the air. The sound would otherwise be no louder than that directly produced by the strings. When the key is released, a damper stops the string's vibration. See the article on Piano key frequencies for a picture of the piano keyboard and the location of middle-C. In the Hornbostel-Sachs system of instrument classification, pianos are considered chordophones.
