    I don't know about Goeff, but the man with Michael on the first video (where he plays Ave Maria) is Bernard Soustrot.

    There is another thread going about natural ability vs. hard work.
    This is a perfect example of natural ability - especially at age 8! Without continued hard work, this natural ability will never be brought to true fulfillment, but I believe these young fellows will reach their full potential.

    Wow! I thought I was good, but this makes me feel like an inadequate player. I just started three years ago, now I wish I would've started at that age. What a fantastic little boy, all I can say is...
    Bravo!

    Geoffrey is 9 now and doing Harry James. This is the first I heard of this kid and was blown away. Check out Geof doing "I heard that song before"

    YouTube - Geoffrey Gallante, "Been a Long Long Time"

    Play close attention at the 2:36 mark. Just love his mannerisms.

    I did a You Tube search on his name and came up with a video entitled "Merry Christmas from Geoff and Family" where he plays piano. I don't know which he is more proficient at, the cornet or the piano. This kid is going to be a super star some day.

    Or, he might get bored with it and decide he wants to go play football. It happens.

    Kid definitely has some ability, but at the moment he's mostly mimicking something or someone else.
