I like my sister Sarah's attitude: if I can figure it out, I can probably do it my self for cheap. Well, my piano has had problems since we moved out East. One of the keys likes to stick, the center E, and it is very annoying because it is a very popular key when it comes to playing. I am pretty sure it is the humidity as this only happened before when the swamp cooler was running all during the summer. Anyways, so I did a little research on the computer and decided I could fix the problem myself. So, I started taking the piano apart.
After cleaning everything out, I began replacing the keys and the key that was sticky, I identified where it was rubbing against the front of the piano. I then got a piece of sandpaper out, did a very little bit of sanding, and whala! No more sticking piano key! Since this was so much fun, I started investigating how hard it would be to tune my own piano. Well, I will be buying myself a piano wrench, electrical tuner, and some mutes here in the near future and I am going to tune the piano! You can do anything you put your mind to!
