Youngsters get to play Steinway concert grand piano
The Steinway concert grand piano, which was built in 1939, was whipped back into shape after years of fundraising finally paid off, reported ksl.com.
It will now go to Olympus Jr High School in Utah, where youngsters will be able to grace the very same keys that were played by some of the biggest musicians of the 40s.
Principal Carole Harris said: "To play a piano of this magnitude is just huge."
The piano has a new set of strings and hammers, all topped off with a new finish that has done away with dints, chips and cracks.
Jayne Springman told the news provider: "I want it to be played. This gives the school and community such an opportunity."
Paulette Breault, a music teacher, has developed a new piano course called EZee Piano Systems.
It makes learning the complex instrument a much simpler and engaging endeavour, according to Ms Breault.
