Playing piano with impaired vision can seem almost impossible but for this musician, he relies on muscle memory rather than sight reading a sheet of music. 

Sophomore Steven Williams is a talented individual who can play piano and is currently learning guitar. He recently moved to LCM from Port Arthur but had no problem making a name for himself with his piano playing.

Williams has always had a knack for music, but his impaired vision has made him have to work just a little harder to learn sheet music. At the age of 15, he started taking piano lessons, but his interest really grew when he got a keyboard for his 16th birthday. 

“When I was taking lessons at my school, I’d go home and learn songs and come back to school the next day and play for everyone,” Williams said. “I always enjoyed doing that.” 

Williams has an interest in learning other instruments like violin, flute, saxophone, cello and pretty much any other instrument he could get his hands on. 

“Honestly, I would learn any instrument,” Williams said. “The only thing stopping me is money.”

Last Thursday, Williams performed “Phantom of the Opera” at the Bears Got Talent show and received a lot of positive feedback from peers and people in the audience. 

“I noticed the mistakes I made but everyone else looked over them and seemed to really enjoy my performance,” Williams said. ” It gave me a lot of confidence in my playing.”
