What Makes a Piano Sing?


We enjoyed hosting another of our “Saturday Mornings at Jacobs Music” this past weekend at our Ephrata location where guests attended “What Makes a Piano Sing,” with Jacobs Music Service Department Manager Greg Cheng, RPT.

Greg shared what makes a piano sing, how it works, and what actually connects the artist to his or her artistry. He demonstrated how the delicate and intricate mechanism connects to the keys to sound and discussed the case structure of the piano and how it all fits together to make something amazing and beautiful. In addition to the piano’s parts and their functions he touched on care and maintenance, as well as why a piano goes out of tune.

Thank you, Greg Cheng, for a very interesting and enjoyable Saturday morning!
