Girl with a Gift: Emily’s start
This is the story of a little girl who was born with a gift. And she opened that gift early.
You could call her a piano prodigy, though the p word is never used in the her home.
Emily was discovered four years ago by her grandmothers, one of them a concert pianist, who’s made a career of teaching musically gifted children like Emily.
Four years ago, Emily’s mom and dad took a trip and left grandma in charge. She heard someone playing piano and thought it was the eldest child.
