The Schoenhut Piano Company designs adult quality pianos for child sized fingers. The half sized three octave fingerboard fits the fingers of three to nine year olds while providing the sound of a professional instrument. Further, the keys are actually full width to encourage proper finger spacing and help in the transition to a full sized piano as the child ages up. There are no strings to tune, instead the piano uses chromatically tuned music rods of German steel.
Even after your child progresses to a full sized piano, the Schoenhut is a beautiful piece of furniture made of maple, birch and hardboard that can accent any home. The dimensions of 24 inches tall, 24-3/4 inches wide and twelve inches deep means the piano can tuck neatly away in a small space while your choice of black, white or mahogany and black while matching the other furniture in your living space.
The piano includes a matching bench at 14 inches by 11 inches by 8 inches. It also comes with a patented learning system of play by color teaching so that a child can use a color chart attached to the piano for a finger placement guide. Along with a children's songbook, a child can learn basic playing skills with a Schoenhut.
