Ergonomically Scaled Piano Keyboard

Did you ever consider how and why the standard size of a piano keyboard octave came to be 6.5 inches and what might be different if keyboards were made to fit the hands of the player? Dan took the first ESPK (Ergonomically Scaled Piano Keyboard) in Washington State to the Washington State Music Teacher's conference in June this year so that piano teachers and their students would have the opportunity to experience a reduced size keyboard. The benefits of such a keyboard were recently featured in an article in "Clavier Companion" by Dr. Carol Leone, the chair of the piano department at SMU. Dan installed this keyboard in a Ritmuller UH 132 R upright piano with the help of David Steinbuhler.
