Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Reaching over 10 million people worldwide – more than 1,500 pianos have already been installed in over 50 cities across the globe, from London to New York, bearing the simple instruction Play Me, I’m Yours.
Located on streets, in public parks, markets and train stations the pianos are available for everyone to play and enjoy. Play Me, I’m Yours invites the public to engage with, activate and take ownership of their urban environment. Often decorated by local artists and community groups, the pianos create a place of exchange and an opportunity for people to connect.
Play Me I’m Yours has just come to an end in Boston, MA, but there are still five active pianos in Singapore, a couple in Aberdeen and two in Canary Wharf. We are currently working with a number of other potential partners for 2017 and 2018, so more new cities will be announced in due course – watch this space! Read More...

Aberdeen Airport: Our fabulous terminal piano is attracting international attention! Pianist Edvard Veldman, from the Netherlands, flew into Aberdeen this morning for the sole purpose of playing the 12 pianos that are dotted across the city for the 'Play Me, I'm Yours' project - and ours was the first on his list! Passengers were treated to a unique mini-concert in the terminal and, we're sure you'll agree, Edvard sounded fantastic. If you're passing through the airport in the next three weeks, we want to see you following in Edvard's footsteps and having a go on the #ABZPiano!

There were quite a number of young and elders who were interested in playing the piano here. Many people gathering around to enjoy the performances by these young and elders. One of the young boys has no musical background but memorised the keyboard by learning from his classmate, using only two fingers. Another young chap also learned to play piano on his own for 7 years. He played beautifully too. Nothing is too difficult if you set your heart and mind to do it! Kaotou to these people who had performed yesterday!
