Guitar Prodigies

Young Masters of Guitar

Many of us who become musicians don’t start until our late pre-teen years or later, and when we do, we achieve our success gradually. But just as in the days of Mozart, there are always a handful of musical geniuses who master their instrument of choice at an almost-scarily-young age. These youngsters shock us with their mastery, often leading to TV appearances and concerts jamming with much-older and established musicians. In this article, we are going to have a look at some of these prodigies, all of whom have chosen the guitar as their means of expression. None of these players are household names…yet.

Myles Mancuso

This brilliant singer and multi-instrumentalist has been playing guitar professionally since the age of 9. He has played at numerous New York area venues such as Madison Square Garden BB Kings and He has appeared with Chet Atkins, Levon Helm, and other well-known entertainers. Watch, listen, and be blown away.

Sungha Jung

This Korean sensation has been playing guitar since a very young age, and has numerous YouTube videos showing off his immense talent. He released his very first album at 14. He learns songs in a mere 3 days before posting these videos online, and he has mastered songs spanning many genres. Here he is performing Eric Clapton’s acoustic ballad “Tears in Heaven.”

Lucciano Pizzichini

Can you imagine beginning to learn guitar at age TWO? Yet that is what this young Argentinian lad did, playing a one-string guitar made by his father.

Hear what this kid can do now:
