Taiwanese Hospital Installs Musical Piano Key Staircase

A hospital in Taiwan has installed a ‘piano staircase’, encouraging patients and staff to take the stairs and get more exercise. According to news sources, the staircase, found at Kaohsiung Municipal Ta-Tung Hospital in Taiwan, stretches 11 stories and each individual stair plays a note as people go up and down.

“The idea comes from a similar staircase that was installed in Stockholm’s subway system in 2009,” Radio Taiwan International (RTI) reports. “Suddenly, a routine activity became an opportunity for musical expression, and 66 percent of the people who walked past decided to take the stairs instead of an escalator.”

And if playing notes with your feet while walking up and down the stairs is kinda fun, imagine the fun YOU’LL have when you learn to play the piano for real! It’s easier than you think and Scott “The Piano Guy” Houston is waiting to teach you! Come on, the kids are grown, the career is wrapped up and it’s YOUR time now. It’s YOUR turn to play!
