This young girl Young Ying-Shan is totally blind and reads music using braille whilst at the piano at the Pioneer School for the blind in Worcester, South Africa.

The eight-year-old studies the music in braille first, and then commits it to memory.

And she has no trouble breezing through Tchaikovsky and Mozart concertos at such an early age.

The blessed little girl took up piano three years ago when she was just five years old whichis quite early for her.

Last year she was even named the top junior instrumentalist in the five- to 15-year-old age group at the South African Championships for Performing Arts.

'I cannot imagine where she stores all that information,' explained her astonished music teacher, Elize Weldhagan.

'In the first month she could do little songs that other kids can do after three or four months. She's absolutely amazing.'
