Schoenhut Piano Company takes the concept of pianos for the very young a step further with this three-octave Traditional Deluxe Spinet. With a keyboard almost half the size of that on an adult piano, this model is designed for the three-to-nine-year-old. The Deluxe Spinet is not “just a toy,” but a fine musical instrument, and lovely addition to your home, as well. Chromatically tuned, the lovely chime-like notes are produced by small hammers striking precision-ground, German steel music rods (versus the conventional taut wires used in full-sized models).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. 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.
