11-Year Old Jazz Prodigy

May 14th, 2015

Joey Alexander. Screen grab from Motema Music.

Eleven year old Joey Alexander is a jazz prodigy who released his first album this week. It’s called My Favorite Things.

He says he doesn’t like being called a prodigy (a young person who shows exceptional talent in something), he just prefers to thought of as himself or as a jazz musician.

He’s originally from Indonesia but lives in New York now.

He started playing when he was 6 years old and taught himself. He says his success isn’t from tons of lessons, it’s from feeling the music in his heart.

You have to see it to believe it.

For more, you can see the extended video here.

Congratulations to Joey Alexander! We hope his album does great!
