Narrow Keys for Small Hands

Different hands different keyboards.png

We don't have the same size hands. Why are we playing the same sizes piano keys?

 

There are now options for pianos with narrow keys so small hands can have a great experience playing the piano! 

 

NO pain, NO performance injury from over stretching, reaching octaves easily and possibly playing 10ths for the first time.

 

These are all the wonderful results of having piano keys that fit your hands.  

I'm standing next to my son (6'4") who has a Yamaha P120.  I have my 88-key new narrow digital keyboard! 

 

It's custom made, semi weighted, midi 2.0, with 2 pedal jacks and midi out.  I am working with a team to find a way to manufacture these keyboards that fit small hands at an affordable price.  Interested? Fill out the form below. 

If you think playing narrow keys affects your ability to play regular keys, watch the Maple Leaf Rag video below. 

Will 2022 be the year?

We are working very hard to get some narrow key digital keyboards made in 2022.  Want updates? Please click on the form...

Stretto Piano Festival

Stretto - Italian for narrow. 

 

The second piano festival dedicated to performances on narrow key pianos is happening June 2022!

 

The Stretto Festival has grown from 17 performers (in 2021) to over 30 unique concerts. If you miss the live events, you can watch virtually at your convenience. 

I am honored to be asked back to the festival and will perform on Thursday, June 23 at 7pm PST.  I will be playing a 45 minute program called Classical to Blues and includes some 2 - piano performances with my dragonfly sister Sue Gould.  I will be performing on 3 different narrow key pianos.  

I hope you can join us online.  There is a nominal fee to watch and many of the performers are dedicating the proceeds to the advancement of narrow key initiatives.  Thank you for your support and enjoy the concerts!
