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.
