Did You Know?

When harpsichord maker Bartolomeo Cristofori created the first piano he called his invention “gravicèmbalo col piano e forte,” which means “harpsichord with loud and soft” in Italian. That long phrase was shortened to pianoforte and then eventually just become “piano.” In Italy, the instrument is often still referred to as the pianoforte, because piano simply means softly or slowly. Though many stringed and keyed instruments were developed before the piano, one of its major innovations was the ability to play it at different volumes, allowing musicians greater expression in their music.

Did You Know? 

Music majors are the most likely group of college grads to be admitted to medical school. Physician and biologist Lewis Thomas studied the undergraduate majors of medical school applicants. He found that 66 percent of music majors who applied to med school were admitted, the highest percentage of any group. For comparison, (44 percent) of biochemistry majors were admitted. Also, a study of 7,500 university students revealed that music majors scored the highest reading scores among all majors including English, biology, chemistry and math.
