Youngster passes advanced piano music exam
Curtis Elton, who is eight, has been mastering the musical instrument from the age of four.
Taught by his equally talented mother Hayley, herself a professional concert pianist, he has astounded people with his canny ability to master a complex instrument.
"I'm incredibly proud and pleased he has achieved this level at such a young age," his mother told Times Series.
"He heard my music when he was little and I would put him to sleep with piano music when he was a baby."
He has also had a brush with fame, after appearing on Britain's Got Talent.
Despite not winning, he left an impression on Louis Walsh, who described Curtis as an amazing star who was "really going somewhere".
The youngster is no stranger to breaking records – he passed his grade 1 piano exam the very same year he started learning.
