Features of a Grand Piano

There are 3 main types of pianos in the market, with those being 1) Upright Piano 2) Grand Pianos 3) Digital Pianos. Today, we will be discussing the features of an grand piano and what kind of audience suits playing this instrument.


For grand pianos, the frame and strings are horizontal, with the strings extending away from the keyboard. The action lies beneath the strings, and uses gravity as its means of return to a state of rest. Grand pianos range in length from approximately 1.5 meters (4 ft 11 in) to 3 meters (9 ft 10 in).


Some of the lengths vary but might include:

  • Baby grand – around 1.5 meters (4 ft 11 in)

  • Parlor grand or boudoir grand – 1.7 to 2.2 meters (5 ft 7 in–7 ft 3 in)

  • Concert grand – between 2.2 and 3 meters (7 ft 3 in–9 ft 10 in))

Grand pianos are generally larger in size compared to upright and digital pianos. They are mostly used for professional recordings and concert performances. However, this does not mean you can't have them domestically. Full-size grands are used in the concert halls. Smaller grands satisfy the space and cost needs of domestic use; as well, they are used in some small teaching studios and smaller performance venues.


Grand pianos, because of their brilliant, singing and sustaining tone quality, are generally more expensive than upright and digital pianos. Their expensive prices are for good reason - you will get to experience richer sounds, smoother sustain, higher ability for note repetitions and many more.
