LOUISVILLE, Ky. - A piano used by Stevie Wonder when he was a student in Michigan has been loaned to the Museum of the American Printing House for the Blind in Louisville 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 went on to become a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.

Museum spokeswoman Roberta WIlliams told the Courier-Journal that the piano will be on loan indefinitely.

It goes on display starting Oct. 11.
