Kyle's Piano: Sounds That Bring Kyle Joy

This book describes how the gifted pianist Kyle Kihara (born 2001) discovered the piano and began composing, following his progression up to his first solo recital at the age of eighteen. Kyle was diagnosed with autism at the age of two. At the age of six, he began playing piano. By fourth grade, he had completed the study of mathematics up to the end of the grade nine curriculum. He began to dream of becoming a pianist from around the fifth grade, despite having autism-related hyper-sensitivity to noise. In junior high school, he became sensitive to visual stimuli as well, but he continued to grow under the tutelage of his piano teachers Akiko Kubota, who let him play freely, and Masahiro Kawakami, who taught him to play Nikolai Kapustin’s music accurately. His story inspires us to keep looking for and developing the things we can do, rather than focusing on eliminating the ones we can’t. (Doi)
