Amazing self-taught pianist plays despite having just four fingers – Daily Mail

Darrius Simmons, of Warren, Ohio, has three fingers on his right hand and one on the left, and was also born without any bones below his knees. He first started playing the piano after being introduced to the instrument when he was a child — and while he has never received any formal training, Darrius kept practicing by himself, allowing his skills to blossom. In addition to playing the piano, the teen has also mastered the trombone. He plays the piano as part of his school’s jazz and marching bands, and the trombone with the school’s concert band. In 2016, Korean musician Yiruma saw some of Darrius’ clips online and invited him to play at Carnegie Hall (right).
