Josiah is 7 years old, and is in the third grade at George Town Elementary. He has been playing piano for almost 3 years, and has excelled quickly! Josiah’s family is very musical; his mom, dad and little brother all play the piano, his mom plays guitar also, and his father composes music. And for his little sister, well she “plays whatever she can find to destroy!” So far, Josiah’s favorite pieces he has played are “Toccata in G minor” by Willard A. Palmer and “Come Back to Sorrento” by Ernesto deCurtis. Aside from piano, he loves playing video games. His favorite is Mario 64.
A note from his teacher:
”Josiah has progressed very quickly. He started in the Alfred series at level 1A nearly three years ago and is now at level 6! He is a delight to teach! He practices hard so he can earn video game playing hours. He is always well prepared at lessons and knows his stuff. We have fun! He suffers terrible stage fright. I really hope that he’ll come out of his shell so that he can share his great gift with others to enjoy and appreciate!” - Lisa Starr
