What is a Harpsichord?
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
This clever harpsichord was built from a box of standard Lego blocks. Tuning pegs and rubber bands were added to create the notes. When a key is pressed, a corresponding string is plucked to create a sound. That’s what makes a harpsichord different than a piano. On a piano, the strings are struck rather than plucked. Brilliant!
