Hmm, maybe that's the sort of piano that one should use for teaching hyperactive little kids (like I was laugh ). Tire 'em out!

Thanks for the fun video!

think you could get in shape doing that for an hour a day?

i've been thinking about joining planet fitness but i think i'll just get one of those keyboards instead. probably better than an hour on the elliptical.

Didn't you all see BIG in the 80's? You could have had this decades ago if you have a few grand lying around for another piano!

Probably the only reason most folks don't have this is the price...I think wii Beatles is safe for now wink
