Why Children has impact

Open Piano Salzburg


Only three chords. Db, Bbsus4 and Fm. That’s it. Never the less it features one of the catchiest motifs of all time. You can check out my transcription on muscore if you like.

I love playing streetpianos on public places to make people happy. Now, Open Piano is a very special organizer of streetpianos. They always provide nice grand pianos and incidentally collect donations for a good cause: Their social music school DoReMi in vienna to make music available for everyone, regardless of their social origin. If you like you can donate sth to Open Piano: https://openpianoforrefugees.com/
