First USA Floor Piano Installed in Elementary School Inclusive Music Garden

The Baby Floor Piano will allow students to compose their own music as they choose to jump, dance, walk or wheel across the keys. Made of heavy-duty stainless-steel construction, our floor pianos are installed flush to the ground, are fully inclusive and wheelchair accessible.
