Check out this kid

I was listening to NPR this morning and heard an interview with a 13 year-old boy who is a concert pianist. His name is Kit Armstrong. Not only does he play phenomenally, his speech is almost unbelievable for a person this age. He also writes modern classical music. Please take a listen.

What a talent. Kids like that scare me a little. I always wished I had learned to play an instrument. But I grew up in an apartment and it was too loud an enterprise.

I LOVE the way this kid talks! He's so soft-spoken and polite and, and...intelligent!

And did you check out his own compositions? Man, this kid is scary in a totally good way.

Jamie Dawn, Kranki and Bucky, couldn't agree more about this boy. As I was listening I looked at Ichabod and said, "I'm blogging this!"
