This instrument is traditionally written for 2 octaves below where it actually sounds.


  • "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" from The Nutcracker performed by Norm Krieger on LAPR's Schiedmayer celesta.

  • This may be the first video of its kind that dives so much into keyboard percussion instruments celesta and keyboard glockenspiel. Film, TV, interactive game composers, orchestrators, keyboardists, and percussionists are given consideration in this video, as we explore celeste and keyboard glockenspiel. How do they differ from each other? In conversation with Hollywood composer / orchestrator / arranger keyboardist Geoff Stradling, LA Percussion’s Abby Savell explores these instruments individually and in combination. 

Please note: these are just examples, as playing technique and mallet/stick choices often have a great effect on the timbre.
