NBSS Student Review

Feedback from this lecture's participants. 

"I really enjoyed seeing the whole process of documenting the teardown, and seeing how thorough the notations and measurements are. The presentation was very clear and very informative."

"I appreciated that this presentation wasn't a general overview, but rather a thorough examination of the breakdown process. It's an aspect of piano work that I don't have much experience in, and seeing the complete step-by-step taught me much more than a quick overview would have."

“I really enjoyed the methodical and well-thought out presentation and methodology of this topic.  I felt like a kindergartener in a physics class at some points, but I was still able to glean much from this lecture.”
