Youngster becomes YouTube piano-playing sensation

Pianos have been set up across the city as part of a project entitled Play Me I'm Yours from the Festival of Ideas initiative and while out shopping with his mum, George felt compelled to give it a go.

George has already been awarded the ABRSM diploma for music which is normally given to people over the age of 19 and his passion for playing the piano knows no bounds.
The Play Me I'm Yours scheme has been used all over the world since its creation 2008 and encourages people to have a go on street pianos.
