Piano Prodigy

Posted:

LONDON - A nine-year-old London school boy is releasing an album after becoming the youngest person in the world to get a university diploma in piano.

Curtis Elton has become the youngest person in the world to receive a diploma - the equivalent of a first-year degree - for his piano skills.

Curtis began playing the piano at three-and-a-half years old with the help from his concert-pianist mother.

On his album 'Daydreams', to be released in November, Curtis plays classical pieces by composers including Mozart and Bach.

Curtis dreams of playing Carnegie Hall and Royal Albert Hall when he's older.
