How people make pianos

Mister Rogers uses a flashlight to look at the hammers and strings inside a piano. He uses a model to demonstrate how the hammers, strings, and keys all work together to produce music. He shows a film about how people make pianos. In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Van Cliburn plays several selections on the piano for King Friday and Sara Saturday. He explains how it took a lot of hard work and practice for him to become a pianist. Lady Aberlin goes to Someplace Else to lend Donkey Hodie a pair of ear muffs. He cannot sleep because Lady Elaine Fairchilde tunes her piano at night. Lady Elaine agrees to be a good neighbor and tune her piano during the day.
