One day Gene and Hannah Bortnick heard piano music coming from their living room. They thought their 3-year-old son Ethan was listening to a CD. Then they walked into the room. To their amazement, they found him playing music on his toy piano!
to someone amazement：使…驚奇
Before this, Ethan had begged his parents for piano lessons. But their answer had always been, “Of course not! You’re still in diapers.” The 3-year-old didn’t let that stop him, though. Instead, he listened to a song once and then played it perfectly, note for note.
After Ethan’s parents discovered his remarkable talent, they changed their minds and agreed to lessons. They turned to a family member who taught piano, and she began working with Ethan. It wasn’t long, however, before the teacher knew that he was no ordinary student. Ethan was a piano prodigy and needed someone who understood his special gifts and abilities. The family found Dr. Irena Kofman, who immediately recognized his talent and intelligence.
