around the world in 18 keys ...

Amidst the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, including lockdowns and the cancellation of concerts, I sought out innovative ways of performing while adhering to social distancing guidelines. This journey led me to explore an unexpected treasure in my possession - a toy piano that had been gathering dust for years, patiently waiting for me to unlock its hidden potential.

What transpired was the creation of an extensive toy piano library, meeting new composers and an increase in my number of performances, exceeding my expectations. As international performances gradually resumed, I decided to sustain this project. However, one toy piano soon proved insufficient, prompting me to expand my collection to a grand total of nine.

In my collection I have various Schoenhut models, a Kawai and vintage models of the Jaymar and Michelsonne Paris.
