Excellent Entry - I only made a few minor tweaks and added a few links so I hope everything is still OK for you.

Those are great links! Thanks, as always.
It's a pleasant coincidence that you did this one today. Yesterday evening, I was doing some research that may result in another entry. It was about Irving Berlin. I got a large collection of old sheet music for Christmas. I'll end up chasing down the origin of all these obscure songs...
I found out that Berlin grew up in the same conditions as Bella Spewack, though he was a bit older. He never learned to read music, and could only play in the key of F-sharp. Why F-sharp? I yelped. Hint: black keys.... I need to do an entry on his piano. He had a transposing piano. Like an analogue keyboard.

Thanks DG - I've sent the Entry to the next stage in the process
That is something that such artistes could emerge from such difficult conditions - worth celebrating in h2g2 Entries indeed... I see your Irving Berlin Entry is in Peer Review now and I look forward to reading that next
