A Greenwich boy can't reach the pedals of the piano yet, but he has already played at Carnegie Hall.
Max Ouyang is 4 years old, and he's had a productive few weeks.
Max graduated this week from preschool and two weeks ago made the trip to New York City to play at Carnegie Hall.
He started taking lessons seven months ago, once a week for a half an hour. Max's teacher says he is a fast learner.
"He has a great ear, so he imitates very well, very quickly. I show him a demonstration, he watches, and he can play it," said Felicia Feng Zhang.
So, where does Max's talent come from?
"I think from my grandparents. My grandfather is a musician. Max's other grandfather, my father is also a singer," said his mom, Rachel Ouyang.
Max has a solo concert this weekend. Some of his friends will be in attendance.
