It was like a field trip that came to us. Our piano needed to be tuned and one of the keys was sticking a bit so Mr. Mike came and took the whole thing apart, tuned it and cleaned it. We were amazed! Seeing the kids' interest, he made sure to explain just about everything to them and he let me take pictures.
Yep! There's an app for that! I took this picture for my all-things-Apple loving husband. Mr. Mike said that his ear always overrules the app if he decides because he's been doing this so long. He was taught by a blind man how to tune pianos. The ear knows best!
Muting the strings with the felt allows him to hear only the outer tone.
When he took off the lower panel to vacuum, I couldn't resist taking a picture of the bridges and the sound board. It was a wonderful, educational opportunity that happened right in our own living room. The best kind, if you ask me!
