Watch Curtis, the eight-year-old piano whizzkid

It's not often an eight-year-old passes Grade 8 piano, but Curtis Elton has become the youngest person in the UK to do it.

Normally Grade 8 is for much older people - it's the musical equivalent of an A-level - but Curtis passed the exam in November.

Curtis, who started playing aged three, is now starting a tour of schools and nurseries to entertain other children.

He'll show them why music is relaxing, and encouraging them to learn.
