Piano Types and Sizes

There are basically two types of acoustic pianos, vertical (also called upright) and grand. Both vertical and grand pianos come in a variety of sizes. The height of a vertical piano is determined by measuring from the floor to the top of the piano. The length of a grand piano is measured from the front of the keys to the back of the piano case.
