In the world of musical instruments, the piano I believe is king. No instrument (with maybe the exception of the human voice) has had more impact on western music than the piano.  

Invented early in the 18th centurythe piano eventually worked its way into nearly every household by the late nineteenth to the early twentieth century. Before the radio, the piano was the central entertainment piece of nearly every house in the developed world. The same reasons people love the piano today are the same reasons people love it today. Here are my three reasons: 

1)  Fun – Playing the piano is a true joy. In an era not dominated by electronics and gadgets that provide instant (yet superficial) gratification, the act of playing the piano was a very common pastime. Set a child in front of the ivories, and that child will sit and play uninterrupted for as long as the adults in the room can stand it..  Obviously, some of us enjoy sound more than others, but a love of music is virtually universal.  

2) Sound – The sound created by the piano is unlike anything else on the planet. Capable of sounding fleeting and effervescent one instant, and gritty and powerful the next, few other instruments have anything close to the range of the piano – both tonally and dynamically.  

3) Looks – Pianos are elegant. Pianos are classy, and automatically raise the status of just about any room they sit in. The shiny, black silhouette of a concert grand piano is about as iconic as it gets. Some of the cases are incredibly ornate, but across the board, nearly every piano produced is at least intended to be aesthetically pleasing. 

We all need time to invest in playing or learning a musical instrument. In my opinion, the joy from producing beautiful harmonies and melodies is one of the best things on earth.
