Resentful Piano Playing = Win.

We put a toy piano in Ike’s timeout corner. Ike is a willful toddler. Go ahead Ike, play piano to spite us. Go ahead. Do just that.

NB: Reverse psychology to secure worthwhile ends is a bad longterm strategy for parenting. It does, however, seem to be an appropriate parenting strategy for reeling in toddler behavior in a way that at the same time promotes musical interest, creativity, and experimentation.
