Matthew Savage, Music Savant

At six years of age, an autistic child named Matt Savage suddenly began playing London Bridge Is Falling Down perfectly on the piano without trial and error to learn it, “from nothing to playing perfectly,” his mother said (Martin 2006). Today he is an accomplished jazz pianist. Before that day when he spontaneously started playing the piano, he did not like to be exposed to any noise.
