Alma Deutscher is an atypical eight-year-old girl – at least when it comes to music. The youngster who wears braids and skips rope is a composer.
Her musical inspirations are seeded by an incredible imagination
According to the Oct. 4, Wall Street Journal, Miss Deutscher was “singing with perfect pitch” before age two, playing the violin at three, and now at the young age of eight, when most children are struggling with the rudiments of reading, writing, and ‘rithmatic, released her own CD.
The prodigy plays violin and piano on her album, The Music of Alma Deutscher, accompanied by other musicians. Miss Deutscher’s music teacher, Tobias Cramm, says that while most people hear music, “She’s able to think music.”
The young musician from Surrey, England says that music comes to her while she is “swinging and skipping rope." Her compositions are compared to those of a young Mozart, even though she says if she wrote what Mozart wrote it would be boring.
The Music of Alma Deutscher was produced by Big Life Management, the label of Boy George.
