What happens when a nonprofit sets up a piano at Worthing Park in Delray Beach? They prove anyone can play the instrument, they said.

The Hands Movement, a national nonprofit that advocates for music education throughout the country, conducted a social experiment at the park, in front of Salt7 and Park Tavern on Atlantic Avenue, in mid-May, then released a video of the result on Youtube.

They had several people, many of whom had never played the piano, play a few keys of B.B. King’s “The Thrill is Gone,” then pieced the performances together.

“People joined in, and the impromptu music lesson quickly turned into a jam session,” reads a statement from the nonprofit.
