The Musical Brain of Savant, Derek Paravicini

April 3rd, 2015 · No Comments · music and the brain

Derek Paravicini of London, England, is an amazing musical savant.  He has been followed by doctors and therapists of all kinds since he was born 3 months prematurely over 31 years ago!  He was fortunate to be born into a well-to-do family, who were able to give him every possible advantage.

When he was three years old, his parents took him to visit a School for Blind Children in London, and there he happened to hear a piano lesson in progress.  Derek rushed to the sound of the piano and literally pushed the teacher off the bench and started to play the piano with “karate chops,” as the teacher described it.”mhCH1M Listen as his father and his “piano teacher for life” talk about Derek and the amazing life he has.  It is an inspiring story of a little boy who might have had a very limited life had not the miracle of music taken hold of him!  Enjoy!
