soft, It comes from piano forte meaning soft and loud :o)
Play It After New Orleans?
gently....... if you are talking about musical terminology<br />
pianissimo is..... very gently<br />
pianissimo or pp (usually) – very gently; i.e., perform very softly, even softer than piano. This convention can be extended; the more ps that are written, the softer the composer wants the musician to play or sing, thus ppp (pianississimo) would be softer than pp. Note: any dynamics in a piece should always be interpreted relative to the other dynamics in the same piece. For example, pp should be executed as softly as possible, but if ppp is found later in the piece, pp should be markedly louder than ppp. Likewise, ff should be executed as loudly as possible, but if fff is found later in the piece, ff should be noticeably quieter. More than three ps (ppp) or three fs (fff) are uncommon.
In music, it means "quiet."
oh no...... you don't mean the "piano man" my toddler was terrified of something she called the piano man. my dog refused to go in the room where it was seen. (the whole time we lived in the house, the dog wouldn't go in that room.)
