At the age of 7 he sat down at a real piano for the first time and immediately started playing recognisable tunes with both hands. Within weeks he was composing his own pieces. A month later he made his first public performance and was nominated for the national Talented Youngster of The Year Award. The top prize in the Music for Youth Awards then followed. For full bio see link. • No need to book – simply turn up, enjoy and take the opportunity to explore and try out Yamaha’s award-winning ranges. • Located on the first floor of the Yamaha Music Store in London, the unique Yamaha Piano Hall offers a stunning backdrop to the Yamaha piano range.
