    I didn't retract anything - I simply clarified what I meant. Sometimes things get lost in the text when there is no inflection to help convey the meaning. :-)

    8, 9, 10yrs old....heck...he was DARN GOOD when he was 6!.

    He played some of the local DC/NoVA area concerts and appeared with the Rappahannock/Mary Washington Univ Symphony when he was 6 and he was astounding then. The conductor took some time (in front of the audience) to "test" him and would call out a variety of "scales" and the kid knocked all of them out (and they weren't the easy ones of the top of your head).

    He had just bought a new Bach "shepherds crook" cornet. I think he played the White House somewhere back around age 6, also.

    Dizzyizzy.

    Geoff is on Facebook, but I haven't found any info there on his future concert schedule. Perhaps some day one of his friends or family members will set up a website for him with this sort of info. Or perhaps in addition to his musical genius, he has a bit of "computer geek" tucked away in him and can do it himself. Something like young pianist Emily Bear's site (www.emilybear.com) would do nicely.

    He's got stage presence too ....... scary. It's fun to close your eyes, imagine an adult playing what you're hearing, and then look and see. His parents are going to spend a lot of money on suits for that guy.

    Yeah! Not just that he looks completely comfortable on stage, he seems to have a real sense of his audience ..... I think it's great to see talented kids, it's good for the music world.
