The word piano is a shortened form of pianoforte, the Italian term for the early 1700s versions of piano. Every modern piano has a total of 88 keys with seven octaves. It began in the late 1880s when popular piano manufacturer, Steinway, created it that way and has been the standard ever since. A typical full-size organ, on the other hand, consists of 61 keys with five octaves.
