Maestro: Our Musical Teaching Program

Big Piano™ "Maestro"is a revolutionary concept of teaching music in a fun and playful way. The player literally follows step by step (lighted key by lighted key) the sequence of the notes in the chosen song or sonata.

The Big Piano™ is a powerful tool to learn music because for the first time you don’t use only your fingers to play the sonata, but you use all the entire body.

Big, celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2013, will forever be remembered for one indelible scene: Tom Hanks, Robert Loggia, and Saraceni's Big Piano™. To this day, Big fans can visit the Big Piano at FAO Schwarz’s flagship store on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue and perform their own version of the classic Hanks/Loggia “Heart and Soul” duet and admire the beauty of this artwork and its inventor, Remo Saraceni.
Saraceni created his revolutionary interactive piano long before the movie Big. No one before him, in the world, had ever thought of playing a giant piano with the body movement. The rest is film history.
