Schoenhut pianos are authentic looking musical instruments built to endure a child's active nature.

The small hammers strike metal rods producing chime-like tones. The rods are chromatically tuned. This helps children learn the intervals of musical notes and their chord combinations.

The keys are correctly spaced to correspond to a full-size piano. This helps the child learn proper finger stretching. The piano keyboards range from one and a half to three octaves depending on the model.

There is a removable color-coded cardboard strip, which fits behind the keys to guide children from chord to chord. The strip can be transferred to a full-size piano.

There is also a songbook containing a collection of familiar tunes notated with color-coding that matches the color strip. This helps children learn that the piano can be fun and easy to play.

There are many different styles for all price ranges. This is a classic product that brings the joy of music into every home.

Schoenhut Pianos are a tradition that began 128 years ago by German immigrant, Albert Schoenhut. Each piano is crafted entirely by hand in the Rochester, New York workshop.
