Friday Fun Fact: Piano Parts

(Sorry for the lateness of this post, but I’ve had a busy Friday. At least it’s Friday!!)

Did you know…

While a piano may seem like a simple instrument to operate, it has more than 12,000 parts, 10,000 of which are moving. The extensive number of moving parts is one reason why tuning a piano can be such an involved process.

Happy Friday!
