I studied piano and 'cello at the Royal Academy of Music and then obtained my Post-Graduate music teaching qualification at Durham University. My career began in the maintained sector, teaching musicand leading extra-curricular musical activities to 11 - 16 year olds at Chellaston School, Derbyshire.
The Spanish nuns (15th century) tuned the middle string of their guitar to their own voice. The lowest comfortable note they could sing was equal to the 'open' middle string. The 3 string guitar (15thcentury) was used to tune the keyboard instruments of that time. The "BLACK KEYS" take up no space. There are 35 "BLACK KEYS" therefore the overall length of the piano / keyboard is reduced by 41% to 1.18meters. Also the "OCTAVE" is reduced to 17cms.
