The Sound of Music
Special encore presentation Saturday 8/7c. Watch the special online now.
Alexander Bui was only four years old when his mother first taught him how to play the piano. She sacrificed her own time to teach Alexander. As a former graduate of the Vietnamese Conservatory she taught Alexander that it's not just about playing notes, but the music must have a meaning. Alexander says that playing the piano is just like any other sport, the more he practices the better he becomes.
Alexander plays the piano six to eight hours a day, and sleeps, eats and breathes classical music. He wants to prove that music is more than Lady Gaga. He wants to show America how beautiful and amazing classical music is. A few weeks ago, he was living a normal life, and now he has performed on one of the biggest stages in America.
