Schoenhut ®Piano Company has taken the concept of pianos for the very young a step further with this new three-octave Elite Baby Grand.
With a keyboard almost half the size of an adult piano, this new model is designed with the three-to-nine-year-old in mind. "Not just a toy," it is a fine musical instrument and beautiful piece of furniture as well. Unsurpassed in quality, pitch, and durability, each Baby Grand is crafted entirely by hand and individually tuned. Its chime-like notes are produced by little hammers striking metal bars, versus conventional taut wires used in full-sized models.
The lovely toy-piano sound is what makes the Schoenhut ® charming and unique. Schoenhut's ® patented Learning System, with its play-by-color teaching method, is designed to make playing fun and easy. A removable color strip fits behind the keys to guide small fingers from chord to chord. The chart also works on adult keyboards, since 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.Features:
