Brady Goss: His Piano Teacher Gave Up on Him… but Gosh!
7 days ago
This week’s guest is the lucky and gifted Brady Goss. As a young child, Brady had been intently watching his dad play the piano day after day and he tinkered with the instrument when his dad was done playing. He was only 4 years old when he tried playing the melody his dad Mike just finished playing on the piano. It was so natural to him that his parents were amazed. He sharpened his musical skills day after day but his parents decided he should get formal training. Brady dreaded the idea of taking real lessons and says he had an “attention deficit disorder” when it came to structured piano lessons. His piano teacher gave up on him but, gosh, he would play it in his own way and with awesome creativity! Brady’s dad loved the style of Jerry Lee Lewis and so did he. The diversity and creativity of Jerry Lee Lewis fed and bred Brady’s innate musical mind – from country music to jazz, and rock n roll – he improvised. Brady was born to play music and sing but he is also a great rancher and a baseball player. He was told he had a keen ear for music. Others think he has a great voice and savvy fingers on the instruments. We think he’s got all of the above.
