                                If that kid is always told how great he is and never gets proper criticism he will not make it far... I think he is talented for sure but it‘s not amazing or out of this world. He just needs to keep practicing and his parents should really stop overrating him so much, I don‘t think it‘s good for him.

The design of the modern violin has barely changed since Andrea Amati began making his instruments in Cremona, Italy in the 16th century.

He also seems to have some bad habits in his hand positioning, but luckily he is young enough to grow and learn and fix the habits. I wish him the best!

This kid is not a prodigy. I’d say he’s 1 in 1,000, which is good, but it means there are also about 7 million others like him(If my assumptions are close to being correct). Have a listen to a real prodigy
