So what is 'Piano for a Day'?
Basically for fun, I shall be putting a Piano around Torquay harbour area for people to play. I don't know exactly what days i'll be doing it, so you have to keep an eye out on this page! What I do know is it's going to be on weekends and when it's sunny!

My name is Danny and I am a local film-maker. But as a hobby I enjoy playing all sorts of musical instruments. Especially Pianos!

Why am I doing 'Piano for a Day'?
Quite simple really! Having a piano and playing it outside is a truly amazing experience. Witnessing pianists at all different ages and skills playing can be very entertaining. This project is completely non-profit, if anything, I'm losing money! It's all just for fun!

Where did I get the Piano?
I was donated the Piano by the kind people at Tower House School in Paignton. An independent day school for ages between 2-16 years.

Who painted the piano?
The Piano lettering and design was traditionally hand-painted by local artist David A. Smith. He has created cover artwork commissioned by musicians such as John Mayer and Kings of Leon. Check out his site here

Can I request a location for the piano?

Who is looking after the Piano?
Local piano tuner and restorer Tom Gill from is kindly looking after our piano keeping it in tip-top shape for everyone to pla
