Piano-is it properly pronounced pee-anne-oh, or pee-on-oh?

Pianist-is it properly pronounced with the emphasis on PI or AN?

Hey, just for the fun of it! :rolleyes:

I think it just depends on what part of the world you're from.

This Californian's pronunciation:
Pee-YAN-oh
PEE-an-ist

Brett:

For spelling it's accompany, accompanist and accompaniment. Looks wrong but it's right.

Mo.
Speaking of trying to pronounce musical terms and accompaniment, I can't say that word for the life of me. It is so embarrassing as a piano teacher explaining it to a student and I can't even say it! I get all tongue-tied.

Any other musical terms that are difficult to pronounce?

P.S.

Here in traditional bonafide hillbilly country, piano may pronounced something like:

pee-yan-ee (or)
pee-yan-er smile

I don't think the word pianist would even be attempted. Someone might say, "This kind (man or lady) is gunna play the pee-yan-ee for ya all!" Or "Would you (sir or ma'm) come up here and play the pee-yan-ee for these kind folks?"

I come from Astraya (australia) where our pronunciation of many words needs to be fixed but I have to say it's p-YAN-oh and P-an-ist.
