“He heard me and then transformed the heart of my story into song – taking me on a journey through myself; distilling all of my energy, emotions, passions, my essence into music on the piano. It was healing and refreshing. It was magical.” ~ Jon-Luke West (online session)
First and foremost, Under the Piano is a musical experience – imagine having a personal private concert for one or two people. All the music that is played is spontaneously created and improvised in the moment, especially for “you”.
Why lie Under a Piano? Because it dramatically transforms your experience of sound and music. The sound vibrations a piano can produce are powerful and when you are Under the Piano you actually feel them with your body – it is a massage with sound. It impacts you both emotionally and physically. This is why Under the Piano effectively reduces stress and anxiety.

Who does Under the Piano?
Individuals, couples, and small groups
Couples, friends, and family members come for a unique experience that they can enjoy together to celebrate their relationship. It’s great for a birthday, an anniversary, a wedding gift for newlyweds, and special occasions like Valentine’s and Mother’s Day. There is room for two under the piano. I’ve occasionally had three smaller people under the piano too.
Pregnant Mothers or Couples
Expectant mothers and couples nurture both themselves and their baby and can then re-create the experience by playing the recording for years to come.
Grief and Loss
Individuals dealing with grief and loss are getting great value out of Under the Piano as well – music directly accesses your emotions without words. See Grieving & Hospice for additional information and possibilities.
Travellers’ Destination Experience
Are you planning a trip to Vancouver? If you live in Vancouver, do you have music-loving guests visiting from out of town or another country? Send them for an Under the Piano session. Vancouver is the only place on the planet where you can enjoy this amazing and unique experience.
“Under the piano was a peak experience for me. I started the experience with my usual chatter in my head, my mind quietened and I began to see a ray of brilliant colours engulfing my body and by the end it was as though my being was one with the piano.” ~ Janet Leduc
Anna Choi shares about her Under the Piano experience
Online vs In-Person
Both are powerful and moving experiences. The fundamental difference is that the In-Person session includes both a physical and emotional aspect and the incredible immersive up-close sound of a real grand piano. Most people who experience an in-person session feel like they have had a deep massage afterwards. The online session works specifically on an emotional level. Both experiences have been reported as transformational by participants.
“What you create with your music is magical. The particularly intimate perspective of being part of the music was blissful and absolutely priceless.” ~ Catherine Wood
Under the Piano for Groups
Groups come too. During these sessions, participants take turns lying under the piano while the others sit comfortably and enjoy the music. I also provide online sessions using conference platforms such as Zoom. For details, see my offerings on this website listed under Public Events and Private Events in the navigation menu.
