Marcus Roberts

by James from Boston

Marcus Roberts, a blind pianist.

Imagine this, playing piano Without looking at the keys, no, not just that, You can't even read the music. Would you just give up on piano, you couldn't play right? Marcus Roberts could. He didn't just become blind, he was actually blind even before he played. He learned how to play piano without looking.

Marcus Roberts is a blind pianist that plays jazz music. He is my hero because I play piano as well and looking at the keys is one of the biggest parts of playing the piano.

I look up to Marcus Roberts because I too play the piano. I can't even imagine playing piano without looking at the keys when you play piano. He shows great perseverance because he had to overcome a lot learning to play the piano without looking.
