Anna Likhacheva: 9 Year Old Virtuoso

El Colibri – Anna Likhacheva (9 year)

“Anna Likhacheva plays in the competition in Moscow (2003) “

You can see the date and yes… that’s some time ago.

But playing like that at 9 years old?

Absolutely amazing!

Well, I’m guessing the discipline that Anna went through is similar to that of those Eastern Block country gymnasts who would train morning, noon and night. Practicing 8 hours a day. Maybe that’s undercutting it. Even I exceeded that when I was a teenager and going into my 20’s.

So you think that Anna has been busy?

Just check out all the competitions she competed in…
