Jacob Collier, an 18-year-old musical genius from London, can make you sway after watching his stupefying music vids. But how did he do that? Prodigy? He might be. Since amazing people have always been an interest to us, we did a little searching for him to see how Jacob’s talent went loco and hit the net!
Now what can you say to that? Whoosh!
As it turned out, I was right. It took more than genius for Jacob to be where he is. Starting from childhood, He was already living with music as he had a family of musicians. His Genius quality surfaced at a very young age. He composed and created music from his earliest years with no formal musical training.
Watch how Jacob and his mom enjoyed their jamming.
At the age of 8, he began taking singing lessons, which gave him a chance to be a treble singer, and an actor? I don’t see the connection. LOL! Jacob first joined a theater in Budapest in 2004 playing the role of ‘Tiny Tim’ in the Hallmark film adaptation of ‘A Christmas Carol’, Etc. (Just wiki the other stuff ^^). In 14 he was awarded by Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) for attaining the highest mark in the country. Afterward, he went to Royal College of Music (RCoM) as a composer and did excellently and needless to say, it became the start of his career in music from that point it was music all the way.
Today he is still studying Jazz at RCoM still trying to improve and explore his talent.
Watch his others be further amazed by his talents.
Combining elements from all these experiences, Jacob continues to develop his own musical sound, using his voice, his hands, and the instruments around him. Featured Image Source: icanmakeyouwebsite.com/sites/susancollier
