Do you know what a diatonic chord progression is? How about transpositions or chord inversions? Michael Herrera does. And he’s only taken piano lessons for six months.

In a short amount of time, Michael has demonstrated a real love for piano and music in general. A dedicated student, Michael possesses a knack for understanding music theory that is uncommon for someone his age.

Michael has even started composing his own music! He recently wrote a song titled ‘When Bad Things Turn to Good’. That’s a pretty insightful sentiment for an eight-year-old.

Michael is gearing up to play ‘Firefly’ at his second showcase performance on March 8th. We have a feeling that he’ll grace many stages in the future.
