Besides giving a child a loving home and nourishment for the body, there is also nourishment for the soul. Young children want to express themselves. We give them crayons for drawing and finger-paint for painting. Imagine their enjoyment of a perfectly tuned, scale-downed size, piano.
There are only eighteen keys, but they are spaced exactly the same way as keys are spaced on an adult-sized piano. The reason for this is to let the youngest children experience the instrument in its correct form, so that later as they grow older, the key spacing feels completely natural to them.
This piano is for children from the ages of six months to two years. The youngest ones may not even be able to walk yet, but still it is delightful to watch them bang away at a piano. This is a very tactile experience of creating a sound, and even the youngest children enjoy doing this.
The 18 keys make it possible to play many of the most memorable children's songs. To help the child learn the correct notes, there is a color-coded strip to place on the piano behind the keys with the matching color-coded Schoenhut's® patented Learning System and songbook included.
