To secure your piano keys in any position, you can use stikki wax (would probably work best from behind). Just a little ball is all it takes to fix things down impermanently.

This is reallly beautiful. I liked the roll-down hill reference to Nightmare Before Christmas. You have a great sense of depth to your sets and your lighting is superb!

Hey Aaron,

Thanks! I actually just wrote someone else about the piano. The piano was a lot of trial and error and I honestly had to hold my breath while animating. I drilled tiny holes in the back of all the keys and connected them with a wire. Then I had them resting on a dowel. Problem was when I pushed down one key the surrounding ones also went down. I wound up locking down all the keys not being played and manipulated the keys from the back. I'm sure there is a better way to go about it and wish I had had a more secure way though!
