LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (AP) — A piano used by Stevie Wonder when he was a student has been loaned to the Museum of the American Printing House for the Blind and will be on display starting next week.

The 1922 Steinway grand piano was long used by students at the Michigan School for the Blind, where Wonder, a child prodigy, studied in the mid-1960s. Wonder signed with Motown at the age of 11 and became a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.

Museum spokeswoman Roberta WIlliams told The Courier-Journal newspaper the piano will be on loan indefinitely. It goes on display starting Oct. 11.
