WP blogger Sara Rosso says to find a subject and instead of taking a picture from in front of, at an angle, to the side, or from behind, take it directly from above.

This is the inside of my grand piano.  It’s where the action is.  Literally.

The action is a large collection of many moving parts that all work together so that the hammer hits the string(s) at the right time.  When a hammer hits a string, the string vibrates ~ and the way that the string vibrates is what makes a piano sound like a piano and not a guitar or a harp.

Some ingenious design. The pianoforte was invented almost entirely by one artful Italian ~ Bartolomeo Cristofori of Padua, Italy.

Want to see his supreme artistry in person? His oldest surviving piano is at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

Here are my favorite five quirky virtuosos from Utah. Watch them put a new spin on an old classic.  And then ~ do try this at home.
