Movies: American Grand


American Grand

The restoration of a vintage Steinway.

Presented in a sort-of scatteredbrained style, which well reflects the spirit of this charmingly quirky team of Musical Mechanics.


Things I learned:
How to organize a group: "So whoever's not doing anything... do something." 
On how pianos work: "There are mysteries in life; this doesn't need to be one of them." 
There does not seem to be Drop Testing in piano building, but they do have Torture Testing. (It involves Rachmaninoff.) 
Physics for Musicians should be a class. And it should mostly be labs.
