Music ‘N‘ magic

Ten-year-old shane Thomas is on his way to music stardom it seems. He has been playing the piano for all of four months and is already being compared to the gifted classical composer Mozart. A bit of an exaggeration, you think? Well, apparently not because Shane, who practises playing the piano for only four hours a week, can play like a dream and can also compose classical music scores in his head while taking lessons. He knew that he could play when he was just three years old and expressed as much but no one paid any heed. Shane, a resident of Woking, Surrey, UK, was seven when he sat down at a piano for the first time and could play it almost instinctively, reported The Daily Telegraph. The young talent revealed that he could compose tunes while listening to his teacher in school. His father records the tunes once Shane returns home. Shane’s piano tutor, Richard Goffin-Lecar, who compared him to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, said that Shane is gifted and doesn’t need much training.
