Any Song, Any Key, Any Style


I played in band during school and have dabbled in writing a little music. I attempted to play the piano for a short while. I’m here to tell you, it is not easy to learn.

Unless you’re Derek Paravicini, that is. Derek is a musical savant, a distinguished musician. His story is stunning.

His discovery of communication through 88 keys is deeply touching. From pushing a piano teacher off the bench at an early age so he could karate chop on the piano, he now leads command performances that wow audiences world-wide. Of special note is his ability to recall any song, play it in any key, and in any given musical style.

All this from a man who cannot count to the number three.

I love highlighting stories that are amazing. This is one of those stories. Want to be amazed? Then click this link to a 60 minutes story on Derek Paravicini. <–click here if the above link doesn’t work.
