How did keyboarding start?

Here is another amusing question that does have a rational answer. Keyboarding has 2 references nowadays; the first being typing with an alpha-numeric keyboard or typewriter, and the second of playing a piano, organ, or electronic "keyboard". Believe it or not, the musical keyboarding came around first, and the "keys" are similar in operation on most instruments from trumpets and trombones, to holes on flutes, and even peg-type keys on Accordions. The keys on a piano (from left to right) represent notes and octives from low to high, and correspond to the notes in the musical scale from A to G. The other keyboarding (typing) started in form with the invention of the Printing Press in the 1600's. Manual typewriters came some time later (with the keyboard layout of letters that we are accustomed to now). Additionally, there was another simple form of mono-keyboarding in electronic for with the advent of the telegraph (developed by Samuel Morse ... Morse Code...) wherein a series of dots and dashes created letters, which spelled out words, which then composed a "telegram" to someone. There is another niche of keyboarding, which involves a courtroom recorder using a stenography machine. This machine has less characters than a standard keyboard, and involves a system of shorthand in conjunction with fewer keys. A good example of shorthand is the use of abbreviations, such as Mfr stands for manufacturer.
