Four-year-old plays the trumpet

...and he’s not too shabby! Check this out: Prodigy, 4, Plays One Mean Trumpet

When you first see Geoffrey Gallante, he looks like any other four-year-old. He loves doing puzzles and learning flags of foreign countries. But, while other kids are still learning their ABCs, Geoffrey already knows his musical keys.
Geoffrey plays trumpet, and is so good that he jams with a jazz band on Friday nights.

Great embouchure, Geoffrey!

He's got a big sound, too, for a four-year-old! (There's an audio link with the article.)

It'll be fun to watch Geoffrey's development as a player. I wish him all the best.

(Long ago there was another youngster who got a start on the trumpet, though much later and less auspiciously:)

  • Well, Mozart's birthday is in a week or so. There must have been a lot of musical prodigies.

    Nice braid.
