Yes: If the wooden sound board dries out too much it can crack, ruining the piano.

Our piano tuner told us to keep an ice cream tub full of water in the bottom just to maintain humidity. (Take the front panel off beneth the keyboard).

Old pianos were never designed for centrally heated houses!

Wel done to Heather too. Music practice can be a drag, but it is well worth it in the end. Keep it up.
