A swedish train company wanted to get more people to use the stairs rather than the escalator.
This entertaining video shows how they did it!
It’s really amazing how they came up with this idea.
I think this should be implemented across every train station in the UK.
Let me know what you think.
Comments on the Piano Stairs video:
Brilliant – thank you very much. Whoever thought of it is a genius!!
With kind regards
Great video, thanks for that, that was really fun to see.
I miss my digital piano so much when I am at work that I decided to build my own virtual piano so I can still practise, ha, ha, ha.
Thanks Loads Graham
what a great idea the train folks had
also the other videos offered were uplifting, especially to us older beginners
thanks again from a Texas Cowboy (horse whisperer) learning again (after 40 years of not playing)
Loved the video. Thanks
Thanks for the piano stairs link, what a fantastic way to exercise
PS I’m loving learning to play the piano, wish I had done it years ago.
It was brilliant, I love it hope to have one someday in my country, thank you for sending me such awesome video!
Just one word “brilliant!”
Thanks so much.
That was amazing! should do something like that here. Kids (and adults) would be on there for hours and good exercise as well!
Listen Graham, if people go tripping the light fantastic on the stairs they may well come a cropper.
I thought pianos were for meaningful tones not meaningless. Actually I prefer stairs to escalators.
Seen some nasty things on escalators, so if the novelty encourages safer journeys, why not.
I’m always amazed at how ingenious people’s minds are, and that’s not a bad thing I guess.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.GREAT VIDEO AND GREAT IDEA
Brilliant! That’s how to get the whole world playing the piano.
The video is just great!
Yes it did cheer me up Thanks for that!
Excellent – I love it!

fun can make things happen sometimes.

This came through in September and I started off by showing it to all my new
“Hi Graham- What a brilliant idea! Trust the bloody Swedes to come up with it. What a way to keep fit! Just ‘play’ a Chopin piano sonata, and you’d lose several kilos in a ‘sitting’!”
Hi Graham – the video is brilliant – such fun! I hope they catch on and we get some over here – we’d soon have a fitter nation…
lol Thanks Graham. That was pretty cool!
Thanks Graham, first day tomorrow teaching music in a new school – this

to make things FUN!

Brilliant! Thanks for the share, Graham!
Great video, Graham, thanks.
thanks. that’s pretty cool.
I have had a stressful day and YES it did cheer me up no end! I would have been playing
on those stairs for a long time trying to see if I could create a tune and driving
everyone else mad! Thanks so much for sending me this.
Funny enough as part of my research buying a piano I came across the video… Not looked at your link but pretty sure it’ll be the same one … Hilarious and v effective making people use the stairs, the healthy option!
Did you see my piano stairs movie I made on Facebook?
Let me know if you’re on fb and I’ll send you a link
Thanks for reminding me about Swedish musical stairs!
I thoroughly enjoyed this video. Thanks for sending it. I look forward to the days when London adopts it!
Brilliant, thanks, I now realise how I should be playing!
Many thanks! It’s lovely!
I really enjoyed that, especially as my practising has not gone very well
just now. I really love my piano.
Ei Graham, thank You! It’s fantastic!
What fun, Graham. Thank you for sending me the video!
It would certainly make people more fit as well as give them a cheery life in the mornings or evenings.
I have been enjoying my piano playing – when I can. Thank you for keeping in touch.
That is a fantastic idea. Great fun and exercise. Thanks for sharing.
Many thanks for such an original and fascinating video. It did however leave me with the uneasy impression that those people using the staircase were better piano players than me.
My fingers are not what they were. However, so long as one has fun!
Nice to hear from you. All the best,
