Sure he plays lacrosse – and video games, but Abraham Godson’s calling must have been pretty clear to his teachers and parents; at a very young age he asked, “Why doesn’t everyone love to practice piano?”
The third of five children in a family where music is as foundational as math, language and science, 12-year-old Abraham has been studying piano at the Community School of the Arts in Wheaton, IL for seven years. At age nine he became the full-time pianist for a local church, where he continues to play along with his father as part of a five member band.
His music space includes classical, jazz and pop – some of his favorite artists and composers include Mozart, Bach and Liz Story – but he’s always had a tendency to produce a little extra something beyond whatever music is written on the page he’s playing from. Now he’s turning those extra somethings into his own original compositions. But only after he’s done with his homework.
