Here is a wonderful LEGO CUUSOO project that is gaining momentum and worthy of your support: LEGO Music Architecture, featuring LEGO pianos and other classical keyboard-instruments by Hidaka.
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.
The LEGO Music Architecture project currently has close to 3,000 votes on LEGO CUUSOO. If you would like this project to be made into official LEGO sets, please vote for it – every vote is important. Remember that LEGO projects listed on CUUSOO need 10,000 votes before LEGO would consider making them into sets, so share it with your friends. If you would like this project to succeed please vote: GO HERE TO VOTE
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

Hey…..Where did all the comments go?
Probably another problem with the server 🙁
Garmadon, we have been transferred over to a larger server to be able to handle our traffic. Comments that were posted on the old server while the transfer was going on are unfortunately lost. On the positive side, we should be able to handle more traffic from now on. 😉
Out of curiosity, what kind of traffic are you getting?
Eric, the avarage is 7,000 visits a day and half a million page-views per month. It was impossible to keep it on a shared server any longer. Had to bite the bullet and get a VPS Pro plan. Not cheap. 😐
Wow! That’s incredible! I was happy I’ve gone from like 5 hits a day to 50+ in a couple months. Hopefully I’ll get to 5000+ some day.
Eric, if you would like to grow your blog, I would encourage you to find your own voice. Focus on providing value and creating unique content that nobody else have. TBB started out with a bang because one of my first posts was a tutorial that nobody else did. It took me two full days to write it, but it worked. 1,000 visits a day in the first month. I could never really duplicate that kind of success, but it started a momentum. So don’t be afraid to be different. 😉
Yellow Ninja, we just have been transferred to a new, larger server, so comments posted while the transfer was going on are unfortunately lost. 🙁
that’s sad 🙁
