How many children have their very own baby grand piano? Encourage your child to be creative at the piano, and he will be composing and playing ballads just like Schroeder in the comic strip Peanuts. This unique, miniature version of a baby grand piano is designed to encourage the very young to play and develop a love of music. Chromatically tuned with a full two-octave span, small hammers strike metal rods, producing lovely chime-like tones. The piano never goes out of tune and the tone never changes. The Learning System, with its play-by-color assortment of songs, is designed to bring immediate success. A removable, color-coordinated strip fits behind the keys to guide small fingers from chord to chord. As your child learns and grows, the color strip can be transferred to a larger piano, since the keys on Schoenhut® toy pianos are of corresponding width. This teaches children proper "finger stretch" from the very beginning. The accompanying Songbook contains a collection of familiar tunes. This Learning System has been specially designed to build a child's confidence and develop basic playing skills.
