The incredible music student Andrea makes her teacher cry | Big learning story | 229 countries

BIG LEARNING STORY The incredible music student Andrea at Ådnamarka primary school in Bergen, Norway is profoundly intellectually disabled, in addition she faces many other physical challenges: she is confined to a wheelchair, has chronic epilepsy, has cerebral palsy & does not speak our language. Nonetheless, Andrea speaks through her song & piano.

ANDREA started practicing on her piano winter of 2012. The initial months were spent practicing only making actual contact with the piano. Eventually she managed to hit the keys with her whole hand. Throughout the autumn of 2013 she had achieved the mobility allowing her to play the keys using her fingers. The next big step was in 2015, when Andrea understood that her key touch determined the volume that came out from her keyboard, and in the videos from 2016/17 she shows great timing and technique.
