Now the Oberlin practice rooms aren't simply "four walls, a stand, a chair, and a STEINWAY piano." Each room falls into a certain category of personality.

I was surprised at the level of detail that goes into every inch of the piano. You can see why a good piano costs as much as a car - we spent a few classes repainting the dampers, aligning and glueing new felt to each damper (the shape of the felt changes through different registers of the piano), putting them back into the piano, and fitting them until they perfectly silenced the strings.
