Awkward situation for a pianist #5 - When something breaks on the piano, will you panic? Perhaps a string snaps in the middle of your performance, perhaps your score flies off, or perhaps this happens to you... your chair breaks... Ouch! Has something similar ever happened to you? Did you keep your cool and continue?

I heard the string, when it just broke, can cut through your flesh to the bone. True?

Bottomline: Beware your eyes when a piano string snaps.

Won't have time to react if it really snaps. No?

Very unlikely that it could hurt someone though. Never heard such news before - "Man attacked by slashing piano wire". Sounds like something I would read in the tabloids.
