Inspired by the beauty of a full-size concert grand, Schoenhut® Piano Company offers this exquisite miniature replica. Complete with opening top to release the lovely chime-like tones, this smaller version is designed for a child with serious musical aspirations.
Each piano is the series is custom built from solid maple and 1/2-inch multi-ply birch, with the interior hand finished to match the selected exterior. The hinge is designed to raise and lower gradually, so as not to slam down on little fingers.
Schoenhut's patented Learning System, with its play-by-color teaching method, makes playing simple and fun. A removable color strip fits behind the keys to guide small fingers from chord to chord. The chart will also work on adult keyboards, since keys on Schoenhut® toy pianos are of corresponding width. This teaches children proper "finger stretch" from the very beginning. This Learning System has been specially designed to build a child's confidence and develop basic playing skills.
Chromatically tuned, the sound is produced by little hammers striking precision-ground, German steel music rods (versus the conventional taut wires used in full-sized models).
