My boy, JJ has been playing the piano for a few months and has learnt to play Beethoven's Fur Elise and wanted to play all the pianos around Bristol. We did 4 pianos yesterday and he really enjoyed it. We're going to put together a video of the piece being played at as many locations as possible. He's currently learning Scott Joplin's 'Maple Leaf Rag' which is very difficult for someone who cannot read music and has only been playing for a few months but live performances around Bristol is really encouraging him and I know he wants to continue to play. Thank you for setting this up, it's a beautiful thing to do. Regards, Mark Kenna (aka Dad :)

The kids were very interested in this piano in the Bear Pit and wanted to have a play. So they did.

This chap played the piano for at least half an hour, never hit a bum note, didn't have any sheet music and didn't repeat himself - it was a pleasure to hang out filming him whilst kids skateboarded and cycled in the background.

Someone playing and someone else waiting to play, I can see this one is going to be popular.

I popped down to check the piano this morning and this guy said he'd like to learn to play the piano - I thought he was doing a fine job!
