The piano comes in many different styles, designs, shapes and sizes. Pianos have two basic categories: the vertical and horizontal pianos.
Basic Types of Pianos

Vertical Pianos - They are called vertical pianos because of their height and the position of the strings. The height of this kind of piano range from 36 to 60 inches. There are 4 types:

Spinet - With its height of 36 to 38 inches, and an approximate width of 58 inches, spinets are the smallest of the pianos.

Console - Slightly larger than the spinet, its height ranges from 40 to 43 inches and is approximately 58 inches wide. It's made with a direct action, thus producing more enhanced tones.

Studio - This is the kind of piano you see in music schools and music studios. It is 45 to 48 inches in height and has a width of approximately 58 inches. Because of its larger soundboard and longer strings, it produces good tone quality and is very durable.

Upright - This is the tallest among the vertical pianos, with a height ranging from 50 to 60 inches and an approximate width of 58 inches. When cared for properly, it stands the test of time and maintains its rich tone.

Horizontal Pianos - Also known as grand pianos. They are called horizontal pianos because of their length and the placement of their strings There are 6 basic types:
Grand Pianos

Petite Grand - This is the smallest of the horizontal pianos. It ranges in size from 4 feet 5 inches to 4 feet 10 inches, it is indeed small but still powerful.

Baby Grand - A very popular type of piano which ranges in size from 4 feet 11 inches to 5 feet 6 inches. Baby grand is a popular choice because of its sound quality, aesthetic appeal and affordability.

Medium Grand - Larger than the baby grand at 5 feet and 7 inches.
