Gazette column: Inside all of us is something truly amazing: The story of the school boy musical genius

It’s “Thursday Thoughts” where I post my weekly Gazette newspaper column to my blog so you can have a read…

This week my column for the Gloucestershire Gazette is about a 13-year old boy at Rednock School, Gloucestershire who, on having no lessons, and without being able to read music, and who is no where near the top academic groups, suddenly walked up to a piano last year in school and began to play. Like a concert pianist.

See, inside of us, each of us, regardless  of our backgrounds, our troubles, is something truly amazing. We just have to look for it.
