How A Piano Produces Sound

 

The piano player presses a key.

Through a series of connections of different parts (this is called the action), the hammer strikes a group of two or three metal strings.

The Strings vibrate.

The vibrations are transmitted from the strings to the soundboard through bridges.

The soundboard, which is made of wood, retransmits sound with more volume.
