CLIFTON PARK - The Rock School Music Academy in Clifton Park has a very special student named Aiden Marlowe.

The 5-year-old pianist is unique not only because he started playing at age 1 but also, because he was born blind.

“This kid has perfect pitch, composes music on the fly and can name a note just by hearing it. He started playing keyboards at age 1 and now likes to mix his own music on an iPad and he plays a full size piano,” said Michael Seinberg of The Rock School Music Academy.

Seinberg says the legally blind pianist is remarkable in all sorts of ways and is funny and positive to boot.
