Curtis Elton, eight, is thought to be one of the youngest people in the country to pass a Grade 8 level music exam on the piano.

He is set to go on a tour of schools and nurseries around the country to show off his skill and encourage other children to enjoy classical music.

Hayley Elton, who is a concert pianist, told BBC Breakfast she teaches her son the piano.
