A couple days ago I had my piano technician Master Cheng come over for regular piano tuning and basic maintenance. I admire him always spending so much time and effort into fixing the little details of my piano(s) so seriously. It is also fascinating to watch the piano being taken apart while listening to him about the knowledge of piano and its maintenance.
幾天前,我請鄭師傅來為我的鋼琴作定期的調律和基本護理。我很佩服他總是花那麼多時間和精力去認真修理鋼琴的每個小細節。而一邊聽著他講述鋼琴和保養知識,一邊觀看鋼琴被拆開,這過程也是十分精采的。

Let’s enjoy the photos taken from the piano tuning session of over three hours!

見到琴鎚上的凹痕嗎?他們是由手指按下琴鍵、令琴鎚擊上琴弦而形成的!

Keeping your piano well maintained is very important. And we should respect the job of a good piano technician.
