88 Pianists Project

3rd December 2018

Year 3 took part in a challenge to help a team of musicians and engineers to set a world record for the greatest number of people playing a piano at the same time -88! Taking inspiration from Leonardo da Vinci, the children created mechanisms to play chime bars and then designed their own finger extensions to help the team break the world record. The winning designs will be constructed by engineers and used by 88 people to play a piece of music on a piano.
