Child and a piano - level 2

Child and a piano - level 2

30-09-2013 14:00

A schoolboy from London is the youngest person in the world to have a piano diploma.

To get the diploma, he had to play three songs in front of an examiner and also write 700 words about each song and its composer.

When he was three and a half years old, he started listening to his mother's music. He liked it very much so he started playing the piano.

Apart from the diploma he has, he also recorded an album which is coming out in November.

Difficult words: diploma (paper which you get after university), examiner (person that tests you), composer (person who writes music).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
