Bartolomeo Cristofori

Bartolomeo Cristofori di Francesco
May 4, 1655 – January 27, 1731

He was the maker of musical instruments, generally regarded as the inventor of the piano.  Cadence had this inventor as a 3rd grade social studies project.  How perfect considering we have recently taken interest in learning piano.  I helped her design and research him.  Here is his wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bartolomeo_Cristofori

We recently purchased a piano from my Aunt Mary

 

I have been trying to learn a couple of songs.  Alexis has taken a little bit of interest in the piano as well.
