Daniel Wu is an 8 year old pianist who is rather shy, but after playing the piano for only 2 1/2 years he is already playing some big concertos with the help of his amazing teacher, Ms. Iris Blanco. Iris shares how her innovative emphasis on getting her students to play in ensembles from the very beginning of their studies helps to produce incredible musical results.
