Classical pianist storms Britain’s Got Talent

A Londoner who drops Debussy into his piano medleys has emerged a surprise favourite in the Simon Cowell television show.

Tokio Myers, 32, was 11 years old when he saw his headmaster stabbed to death in a Maida Vale school. He has developed an piano act that is distinctively his own, rooted in a classical training.

Is the pop world ready for a proper pianist?

    The pop world is full of classically trained people. They are called session players, studio musicians, background singers, hell, even the occasional producer. ☺

    Barry Manilow? Juilliard trained. Keith Emerson. Peter Skellern from Procul Harum. Loads, in fact.

    Not to mention DR. AL-W.
