The piano originated from the west, but after the development of history and the spread of music, the piano gradually became popular in the creation of music in China. The creation of Chinese-style piano music was deeply influenced by the western music culture in the early stage, and its Chinese characteristics were not obvious in style. However, with the social reform and the development of The Times, the creation of Chinese-style piano music has been able to present Chinese characteristics, and the creation methods and content of music are also more distinct. Based on the characteristics and techniques of Chinese style piano music creation, this paper discusses the creation and development process of Chinese style piano music, and provides basic research data for the creation of Chinese style piano music.
