Jerry George, father of Jacob Samuel:

My son Jacob Samuel currently mastering to learn the Russian style of piano playing at KM College of Music and Technology (its A R Rahman’s music college)

I’m very much interested in sending my son for inter school and all India music competitions.

Jacob Samuel was born on 1st July 2004. When he was just two and a half years old, he showed a peculiar interest in observing me while I played the keyboard, which was quite unusual for a child of that age. Next, he showed interest in trying the keys with his tiny fingers. Astonishingly in a short time, he started reproducing on his own the tunes he heard. When he was just 4 years old, he was able to play a complete song before an audience.

After seeing his extra-ordinary talent I started to give disciplined training on piano to him. At the age of 5 he completed his Grade 1 and at the age of 6 he completed Grade 4 in piano from the Trinity College of Music, London under the guidance of Leslie George (New York) and George Samuel (India)

Now my son is 9 yrs old, a student of class IV at the Alpha Matriculation Higher Secondary School, Chennai and he is continuing his training in Piano at K M College of Music and Technology, Chennai, under the able guidance of maestro Dr. Surojeet Chatterji.

Performances of Jacob Samuel:

  • Completed Grade 4 at Musee Musicals, Chennai. (Trinity College of Music London)
  • Has got an unique in born musical gift of perfect pitch.
  • Invited as a guest performer for the award winning function conducted by Musee Musicals, Chennai, under the category “Youngest candidate appeared for the highest grade”
  • KM Music Conservatory Annual Day concert 2012 & 2013
  • Chennai International Film Festival
