Inspire Your Budding Pianist with a Schoenhut My First Piano {Giveaway}

One thing that I have learned as a parent is the fact that I took my parents for granted.  I never realized everything that went into raising a family.  Growing up my parents always went above and beyond the call of duty.  They did everything from playing cab driver to volunteering at school functions (and everything in between).

I remember so vividly as a child going to piano lessons during the summer, the lessons were fun, it was the practice at home I didn’t like.  I wish that I would have realized the opportunity they were giving me instead of thinking ‘why is she making me do this.’    Part of my problem was, I had never been exposed to any type of musical instrument until that summer.  I believe that if I would have been introduced to it when I was very little, I would have grown up loving it.


With the Schoenhut  18 Key My First Piano now you can introduce your baby to a musical instrument before they even begin to walk.   We received the precious red toy piano and my children were thrilled.  As you can see from the picture they were both playing on it at the same time.  It is the perfect height for both of my children to sit on the floor and play it.  Although no one in my family can play a tune we have had fun trying to play a song.   My First Piano comes with Schoenhut’s play-by-color teaching method and comes with removable color strips that fit behind the keys to guide your little one’s fingers from chord to chord.  Also included is a Songbook containing some of your favorite tunes.

The learning system is designed to make learning fun and simple.  I have to admit, I think I had just as much fun as the children did trying to play different songs.  The width of the keys are specifically design to encourage the correct finger placement to make transition from the My First Piano to a large piano.  With Christmas right around the corner, this would make a perfect gift for that special youngster in your life.  The Schoenhut 18 Key My First Piano retails for $55-65.
