8-year-old child prodigy masters the cello

An 8-year-old cello player has already accomplished more than some musicians do in a lifetime. 



Shaw Edwards has played Carnegie Hall three times in the past two years and can now play Bach's first four Cello Suites.



"I love it so much," Edwards says of playing the cello. "I even take it on vacation sometimes to play. You can play it loud or soft and you can play a lot of bows or short amounts of bow."



Edwards says he plans to work on suites five and six in the future so he can play all of Bach's Cello Suites in one concert.
