* How a Piano Works * The Difference in Pianos * Piano language
* The piano has been around since the 1600’s * When you push a note down a little hammer hits the strings which makes vibrations which is sound. * When you press the pedal to the right it keeps a holder up so it wont cut off the vibration. * To change the sound of a piano you tighten and loosen the strings inside.
* All sound are vibrations * When you let go of a note a little holder goes on the strings to stop the vibrations. * When you press the pedal to the left it keeps the holder on the strings.
