Hi Gonzalo...
Check the note about Ti/Si below....
I couldn't get it to start on an XO-1 yet.  It tries to load the screen but fails. Which build should I try it with? I tried 2 one was 12. something and the other was 13.1.0. Any suggestions?

Felicitaciones Gonzalo! Me encanta!

You have done an excellent job with this. The way you allow the user to switch from Qwerty to DoReMe to CDE is ingenious. I checked the intonation with an electronic tuner, and it is right on the pitch it is supposed to be.  

Two small suggestions...
* In some countries "Ti" is used instead of "Si." Is there any way to switch these on the keys in the  DoReMi keyboard?

I am not sure about what to do here: if support the different names as a localization, then a translator can put the names,or if I should add another button in the toolbar, and change to another representation, almost equal, but with Ti instead of Si.

I like the idea of a button on the toolbar. Just make it "Ti/Si" (or "Si/Ti") and they should be able to figure out what to do with it. Trying to do localization would require doing a huge survey of which one is used where.  
* Each of the sharps (#s) has a corresponding enharmonic flat (b... well it looks sort of like a "b"). Could you include them above the sharp names on the black keys? So they would go like this...

Db   Eb   Gb   Ab   Bb   Db   Eb   Gb   Ab   BbC#   D#   F#   G#   A#   C#   D#   F#   G#   A#

That way, when a song was in a "flat key" (and lots of them are) there would be no "translation" problem!

Hmm, I understand. Is something we can do modifying a little the codeFilled another ticket https://bugs.sugarlabs.org/ticket/4496
 I'll play with it some more in the next few days and let you know if there are any other things you might consider. So far, I just tried it on an XO-4 with a touch screen. I need to update an XO-1 so I can see how it works there.

Thanks by the comments. Feedback is welcome.
Muy buen trabajo!Carolina (Caryl)
