Antonio Ballista

Pianist, Concert Performer

“Despite the apparent levity in the name, Happy Fingers is actually something very serious: being sure I am playing the piano with physiological, effortless piano technique. You can’t beat Happy Fingers: to help start your musical training, or to start playing your instrument again. As far as this Happy Fingers concept is concerned, you are actually unsure what you should admire the most : simplicity in the way the device has been handmade, or the genius idea behind the invention itself”.

Aldo Ciccolini

Pianist, Concert Performer

Found Happy Fingers to be a useful device, both from the piano technique and the physiological point of view:“... After exercising for a few minutes you can feel a sense of well-being in your fingers, as well as a general calm feeling, which turns my piano studies into a very pleasant experience...““...it allows me to do very formative research on timbre “

Riccardo Zadra

Pianist, Concert Performer

“Happy Fingers is a very useful and effective tool. When I started using the device I had not been playing my instrument for a long time, and Happy fingers helped me to brush up all my manual skills, in no time at all. Happy fingers saves hours of studies, which are often tiring and expensive . I have actually started using Happy Fingers in the Conservatory, and at the piano academy where I teach, because I think this device is unbelievably useful : to grasp the physiological principles of piano technique in a direct, hands-on way”.

Arnoldo Mosca Mondadori

President of the“G. Verdi”Conservatory in Milan

“He is like a modern Archimedes, he has the great inventor’s bright eyes, but at the same time he is a modest person, he is not in the least full of himself : Tiziano Poli is a great asset for our country. Thanks to his invention, Happy Fingers, the life of hundreds of students, teachers, and musicians is going to take a turn for the better”.


Tiziano Poli

Inventor of HAPPY FINGERS®

Pianist, concert performer, professor at conservatory“G. Verdi” in Milan.

He studied music at the G.Verdi Conservatory in Milan, achieving a first class piano and organ degree. He subsequently attended postgraduate studies at the “Ecole Internationale de Piano, in Lausanne, with Fausto Zadra, then becoming an Assistant at this school . In 1982 he won the First Prize during the Twentieth Edition of the “A.Speranza” piano competition in Taranto, by unanimous vote . Tiziano Poli has been working together with various music companies, since he started working in his profession, and some of his recitals have actually been broadcasted by RAI (Italian public television channel . He has also been invited to the “Musik - Biennale” in Berlin as a guest . Tiziano Poli gives lectures on “The physiological Mechaniques of Piano Technique”, a subject geared towards improving Piano Technique, in various Conservatories and musical institutions. In 2008 his research led him to register his device Happy Fingers® as a trademark, this was followed by developments at Milan Politecnico University, to be applied in the rehabilitation field . The University detailed this research in a degree thesis by Dr. Sebastiano Lang . Tiziano Poli’s musical repertoire, apart from the classical musical literature, also comprises pieces which are not commonly played, such as Beethoven's ’Symphonies in F. Liszt’s piano version, or the works of nineteenth century American composers. His two instrumental facets allowed him to execute original organ pieces by J.S. Bach, as well as piano transcriptions by Liszt, Tausig, and Busoni during the same concert. Tiziano Poli published a“Eine Faust Symphonie” by F. Liszt CD (Version for 2 pianos). His studies focusing on“Physiological mechanics of piano technique”, a subject geared towards naturally improving your piano technique, led him to his Happy Fingers® concept, a revolutionary device that lets you activate all the muscles in your hand, both naturally and physiologically.

“... actually a very good idea”.

Franco Cerri

Guitarist, Concert Performer

“During my experience I have often had to grapple with all kinds of technical problems. People described Happy Fingers to me as some revolutionary device, that was going to sweep aside all my worries, so since I felt both very curious and a little skeptical, after actually trying out the device, I can really say that this device designed by Maestro Poli not only lives up to all its promises, but also really helps persons who have turned music into their profession and their calling”.

Nazzareno Carusi

Pianist, Concert Performer

“Happy Fingers lets the fingers achieve the performance and the physiological results, which normally require hours of instrumental technique effort, thus avoiding work overload( I am sorry to say the instrumental technique being applied often happens to be wrong), so the fingers do not end up getting overtired, or worse”.

Fabrizio Campanelli

Composer, Producer

“My hand always needs to be ready for my job, but my profession does not actually leave me a lot of time to keep my hand fit, to the contrary, often being a composer and producer hardly leaves you any time at all. Difficulties and issues caused by fingers lagging behind thought, are all solved by Happy Fingers, and lack of time also stops being a problem. I owe Maestro Poli, his knowledge and his genius all the beautiful things music has bestowed upon me”.

Franco Scala

Founder and Director of the“Incontri Col Maestro”

International Piano Academy, Imola, Italy

“Thanks to costant hard work, the pianist may well create his own virtuoso piano technique, but the main issue is actually mastering it. That’s why I think Happy Fingers is a stroke of genius. It helps you remove stiffness in the hand, by giving it natural fluidity of motion. Happy Fingers also provides a direct brain-finger interaction, which is a must to achieve beautiful sounds!”.

Guido Boselli

Cellist, Concert Performer

Cello Professor at the Conservatory in Como

“I am constantly using Happy Fingers, with my students at the conservatory too. I consider it a very useful tool, to keep focusing on correct hand motion, Happy Fingers is also crucial when you can’t actually work with the cello”.

Giovanni Mazza

Organist, Concert Performer, Conductor

Organ Professor at“G. Verdi”Conservatory in Milan

“I would like to thank Tiziano Poli for the precious gift he gave all of us, who play a musical instruments, as well as teaching students how to play a keyboard instruments. His idea, as brilliant and simple in retrospect as the egg of Columbus, actually applies a rather complicated set of principles to a surprisingly straightforward mechanism, which is an invaluable help for musicians, having both little time and artistic needs calling for both ever efficient technical tools and technique mastery. I can say that benefits stemming from brief recommended exercise times feel rewarding from the word go, as well as being quite remarkable, whereas the effort required is very light indeed”.
