dc.description.abstract The study of how the modern grand piano functions from a construction standpoint has been overlooked by modern pianists. This dissertation explores how an understanding of the inner workings of the piano will lead to more healthy, efficient, and purposeful approach to the performance of the piano. It examines how the piano is constructed, how the piano functions, and how the pianist can apply this knowledge to better advance their overall understanding of piano performance.
