The idea of this LEGO CUUSOO project is to create a set of LEGO minifigure size keyboard-instruments. Besides building-instructions for the LEGO pianos, the sets would also include information about the instruments’ history and making. Also the sets would feature minifigure versions of famous composers and details of their life.
Adding information about the musical instruments would make the LEGO Music Architecture sets not just appealing to LEGO fans, but also music fans. The concept is similar to the LEGO Architecture sets, where a nicely detailed booklet is included about the structure featured, as well as the architect who designed it. This makes the sets suitable as novelty gift items for people outside of the LEGO community. Check out this video:
And of course having unique minifigures in each of the LEGO Music Architecture set, would appeal to collectors, as well as LEGO fans. The currently included ideas for minifigure composers include: Bach, Chopin, Mozart and Beethoven. Who wouldn’t want to have those big-wigs in their minifigure collection?
Here are some other musical instruments that are currently included in the LEGO Music Architecture series: grand piano, upright piano, harpsichord and pipe-organ. I’m sure other interesting instruments can be added as well.

Also, if you go to the LEGO CUUSOO page, Hidaka has provided building instructions and parts lists for both the grand piano and the upright piano, in case you would like to build one yourself. Just scroll down about half-way through the page: PIANO INSTUCTIONS HERE
