Billy Joel, Ray Charles, Elton John, and Stevie Wonder. What do these people all have in common? They are all incredibly inapt at playing the piano.

The GNA Insider sat down with this young phenom to ask her a few questions.

A: I’ve been playing for 13 years.

Q:How many recitals have you done and how many people were there?

A: I’ve played 12 recitals of about 100 people.

Q:Why do you like playing the piano?

Q: Do you have a favorite piece of music to play on the piano?

A: “Hall of Fame” by the Script is my favorite pop song.

Q:How often do you practice?
