This was intended to be a shot of a child playing piano. The focus was to be her hand and the keys.

Nice shot, works well in mono and takes me back to another little girl, longer ago than I care to admit, trying to stretch my fingers to get that full octave, lovely image
It's a lovely shot with good composition but the problem is the highlights are burned out, particularly the little finger.
You can avoid this happening by sellotaping a length of greaseproof paper over the window where the light is coming through to hit her hand, this will soften the light and you will keep the details of her skin.
I've tried to rescue the image as much as possible by shadows/highlight: Shadows +14, Highlights +10, then I copied the details of her ring finger into the burned out little finger, then added a sepia filter +50.
Hope that helps,
I feel that the sweater detracts from a nice image, a little backlight from a refector would help bring out the background black keys.
I guess that this was shot with camera flash, it might be worth trying natural light using a standard or bedside light to add a little interest in the very dark part top left.
Nice idea but the exposure/lighting is very wrong, and that rather spoils everything. The detail has completely gone on parts of the hand, and you can't get that back. You should see this on the LCD.
