Do you love beautiful flute music? Maybe a piano concerto, the trumpet, or guitar sounds. Or perhaps something more exotic like the harp or shehnai? Listen to the music of Neil Nayyar. He plays over 100 instruments and is planning to add more to the list in the future.
Chances are if you love a particular type of music, Neil plays it, and he plays it well. Classical, Bollywood, jazz, rock, and sounds from all over the world flow from this musician, but this is not the only amazing thing about him.
In the Beginning
Neil’s parents’ credit much of his ability and love of music to Mozart classics he listened to while still in the womb. However, his talent didn’t surface until he was five years old when he took a drum class and wowed everyone, and this was just the beginning.
Not an Overnight Success
A lot of Neil’s talent and abilities as a multi-instrumentalist are natural, but he leaves nothing to chance. In fact, he practices his music six hours each day. The child prodigy is receiving training from 25 musical professionals both locally and internationally. Neil is self-motivated and not one of those kids driven by his parents. It is all about his true love of music.
Neil holds the Assist Foundation’s world record as the youngest person to play all those instruments from all parts of the planet. The Assist Foundation provides a lot of resources for secondary education opportunities for young people around the world.
It’s Just the Beginning
Neil has auditioned to for two television shows, America’s Got Talent, and Steve Harvey. He is interested in a wide range of activities including hip hop, jazz, and Bollywood dance, martial arts and watching Salman Khan movies. Neil has a passion for painting too and has done more than 100 watercolor and oil paintings.
Neil is currently composing his own music and working on his debut album “Breaking Barriers”, which will contain seven songs, one of which will feature 107 world music instruments. Neil is also the author of the book “Passion to Exploration of 107 Sound Machines”. He also has a passion for teaching score music production. You will be hearing a lot from this young man soon, so start following him today on social media.
