A KEEN musician and pupil has taken part in an attempt to break the world record for the most amount of people playing one piano at the same time.

Theo Forsythe from The Grove School in Trowbridge took part in 88 Pianists, a project to design a mechanism which would be used by pianists to press a key on the piano.

His creation was used in Birmingham last week where the record was broken, with 88 people playing the piano at once.

Theo said: "It was amazing to travel to Birmingham with my family and my teacher to see the designs all come together. My design was number 29 out of 88 keys on the piano. I really enjoyed the experience and can't wait to tell my class about it when I get back to school.

Anna Pemberton, head teacher said: "The school is incredibly proud of Theo for this amazing achievement. Being part of 88 Pianists has been one of the highlights for the school this year."
