Autistic Boy Gets Piano After He Teaches Himself To Play
Chattanooga, Tennessee—(Wise Brother)
Have you heard about this kid yet? An 11-year-old in Colorado named Jude Kofie has autism, and learned to play the piano without any lessons. He’s just naturally gifted, and people are comparing him to Mozart.
His parents don’t have much money, so all he had was a keyboard. But late last year, a guy who tunes pianos named Bill Magnusson heard him play . . . and was so blown away, he paid $15,000 to buy him a grand piano.
It doesn’t sound like Bill’s super wealthy. He used a chunk of his inheritance to buy it. He’s also paying for lessons, so Jude can get even better. And he promised to tune the piano for him once a month for the rest of his life.
