Can New Contrasting colours applied to Piano Keys design look & feel nice?

Will the Piano end user may get difficulty in adjusting to the new Piano Keys contrasting colours instead of Black & White?

Thanks & Regards,

Thanks.

As a example,

There are 88 keys on the Piano Keyboard.
52 White & 36 Black keys.

Instead have 52 Blue & 36 Orange Keys on the
Piano musical instrument.

Thanks & Regards,

In theory, piano keys could take on any two contrasting colors, and you could certainly paint them any way you want. Historically though, pianos were built with two main materials; ivory and ebony. Ivory comes from the tusk of elephants, so naturally, that’s the color. The ebony is the black keys. If you do some searching around though you can find some awesome pianos where the key colors are actually reversed. So basically the white keys would be black keys and the black keys would be white keys.



For pianist, the less they have to worry about the keyboard the better. Visually it’s much easier to see the keys when they are colored this way (or perhaps in contrasting colors?). I suppose if you have the money, you could customize your keyboard to have any color scheme that suits your personality. White and black is more so customary than it has to do with function.

Which contrasting colours would suit the piano keyboard keys according to you apart from Black & White?

Personally, I don't think any of these contrasting colors would suit a grand piano -- they would make the piano look silly.


From the link you sent me, it shows a picture of complementary colors. Is that the same as "contrasting colors"? If so, complementary colors are simply pairs of colors which, when combined or mixed, cancel each other out (lose hue) by producing a grayscale color like white or black. The white and black keys accomplish the same, so maybe that's the optimal complementary colors to choose. All the rest are ugly, just my opinion. Undecided

 At first, it is normal that you will have difficulty in playing the colored piano, and it could even become boring. But once you have already familiarized yourself on how the color piano works, then you will have a fun and exciting feeling when you play it.

It may seem unusual, but in actuality, it accelerates the learning process within the person who studies to play the piano. Because of the colored keys, it is easy to remember what specific key generates a distinct note.

Generally, when a person wants to play the piano, he will look for an individual who offers piano lessons and pays for each lesson. But with color piano, there is no need for an instructor. Just simply go online, get the app and start playing. Thus, you will be able to enjoy yourself with the app and enhance your piano-playing skills as well.
Overall, learning to play piano has never been this easy. Using the traditional piano, you will need a lot of time coupled along with a tremendous amount of effort to really master playing the piano.
But with the color piano, you will only need a few minutes a day and there is no need to look for a real piano to learn how to play it.

I think having a different color for every key is definitely a learning hack that beginners who don't want to pay for an instructor can use; it's kind of like training wheels. However, you should never underestimate the wisdom, advice, and know-how that an instructor can offer your.

Sir Elton John, piano musical instrument expert will not find any difficulty on adjusting to the new piano keyboard coloured keys?

Experts can play without looking at their keyboard, they have every key mapped out, contingent that it's a standard size. Much the same as a typist writing on a keyboard, that is, as soon as their muscle memory adjusts to the micro changes in key size, they begin to type just as fast. Key color doesn't matter

I agree with you since Sir Elton can play the
musical instrument piano without looking at
the piano keyboard keys as he is a expert.

But I am now taking a different scenario.

Scenario

Sir Elton John has been given different manufactured Piano Keyboards which are having
different contrasting Keyboard keys colours instead of Black & White.

Now Sir Elton has been told to sing the song "Sacrifice" with these new Pianos but the condition would be looking at the Piano Keys.

Will Not Sir Elton get a different User experience - UX since the User interface - UI is changed for the Piano Musical instrument?

What are your views & opinion about this ?

Thanks & Regards,

The Piano Keyboard keys are similar to Gui command buttons form controls. We are changing the background colour property of the Piano 88 Keyboard keys. 56 White & 32 Black or vice versa.

Professional pianists rely on the layout of the keys to know where to start playing, as each key plays a specific note:



Scenario Sir Elton John has been given different manufactured Piano Keyboards which are having different contrasting Keyboard keys colours instead of Black & White. Now Sir Elton has been told to sing the song "Sacrifice" with these new Pianos but the condition would be looking at the Piano Keys. Will Not Sir Elton get a different User experience - UX since the User interface - UI is changed for the Piano Musical instrument?

Modern piano keyboards ordinarily have an octave span of 164–165 mm; resulting in the width of black keys averaging 13.7 mm and white keys about 23.5 mm wide at the base, disregarding space between keys.

If Elton John has practiced playing on a specific-width piano, then changing to another keyboard will be problematic, even for an expert like him. Put yourself in his shoes. Try altering your computer keyboard to something that's smaller or larger. Chances are, you won't type as fluidly until your muscle memory begins to adjust to the change; surely it'll take a few hours to adjust. I use a BlackBerry phone to type my messages; as long as I know the QWERTY layout, I will be able to type what it is I want to communicate. Musicians are the same, no matter what piano you give someone who's an expert, they'll be able to play it because they know the key positions. As mentioned, they'll just need time to adjust. Color is no issue either.

The video is tinted in monochrome, a change in key color wouldn't show up

Thoughts?
