Rural Idaho: Cultural Wasteland?

One of girls from church needed to practice before a live audience, so we went to her place after church today:

Home schooled.  You can see why public school teacher unions hate home schooling so much.

Some of the strange noises in the background are puppies and parrots.

She seems very talented.

My mother's mother had a grande, or maybe baby grand, piano in her home. As far as I know, no one else in her family learned to play a piano. I don't think any of her grand kids were allowed to touch it. She was an alcoholic, and a bit of a witch. It was lost when her house burned to the foundation, due to a fire in the clothes dryer vent.

I just remembered that one of my sisters has a piano, but I don't know if she plays it. Her daughter does. It's possible it was originally acquired as an accent for the main entryway, as there is a spot that seems to have been intended for a large object, in-between the two grand staircases that curve behind it.
