Eight year old will play piano at Carnegie Hall
A precocious pianist will get to fulfil a dream when he gets up on stage at Carnegie Hall to give a performance that will no doubt wow audience members.

Dominic Pang, who is only eight-years-old, has been playing the piano since he was four-years-old.

Since then he has gone on to develop a talent that suggests he could become one of the greatest piano players in the world.

Speaking to the Folsom Telegraph, the youngster explained that what drew him to the piano at such a young age was how complex and interesting the musical instrument is.

He indicated that what he particularly likes is how the hammer hits the strings to make a noise.

"I like to play classical music because it has all the composers I like," he told the online news provider.

"I like Bach and Mozart. When I play, I try to put emotion into my music."

He is so ahead of the game that he adds a bit of creativity to his performance to express the true emotion of the original composers.

This includes, for example, imagining Mozart drinking a cup of tea.

In related news an engineer from Kansas City has revealed that he has developed a self-tuning piano.
