Aside from talent, christopher has a link to greatness. His instructor is Dr. John Cobb, who's musical lineage goes back to Franz Listz, perhaps the greatest pianist of all time. And if you go back further, Listz is connected to Mozart. That claim to fame gives Christopher yet another reason to play with passion. WATCH: Piano Prodigy In Action
