Tune It Up

Piano tuner here today. Our new Shigeru Kawai, as beautiful as it already sounds, needed it’s first inaugural tuning after being moved from the factory in Japan to Sacramento, Ca to Modesto, Ca. For some reason the musical game app we use with our students won’t work with the c. He’s working with it now to fine tune it.

Funny thing how musical pitch works. The sound is in the air; you can’t see it, but it is nonetheless ‘real’. And if a note is off, it will not play well with others. It takes (on a piano at least) 88 keys all in perfect tune to play a beautiful song. If even one is off, it will affect the overall sound. Every note matters.

I don’t need to connect the dots here do I?
