Ethan Loch: The boy composer who can't read music

Ethan Loch is the first blind pupil to be accepted at St. Mary's in Edinburgh, which is one of the top music schools in the country.

The ten-year-old was offered a place after several auditions and interviews.

He also composes pieces of music by himself that he commits to memory.

Ethan and his mum Larinda spoke to the BBC's Helena Merriman about his musical talent and starting at a new school.
