Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Reaching over six million people worldwide – more than 1,300 pianos have already been installed in 45 cities across the globe, from New York to London, bearing the simple instruction ‘Play Me, I’m Yours’.
Located in public parks, bus shelters and train stations, markets and even ferries the pianos are available for any member of the public to play and enjoy. Who plays them and how long they remain on the streets is up to each community. Many pianos are personalised and decorated by artists or the local community. By creating a place of exchange Play Me, I’m Yours invites the public to engage with, activate and take ownership of their urban environment.
We are delighted to announce that Play Me, I’m Yours is currently live in Nicosia, Cyprus until 26 October 2014. More 2014/15 cities will be announced in due course – so watch this space! Read More...

Charteris Music School students' awesome interactive performance of 'The Banana Boat Song' with the Arts Centre of Melbourne that incorporated a play-along and sing-along with the audience. Our students taught children from the audience a piano part & invited them to play along. Other members of the audience played percussion with Patrick Cronin and sang along with Vanessa Chapple during the performance. Together, we formed a massive Banana Boat Song orchestra and choir and everyone had great fun!
