Luka Coetze is like any other six-year-old girl except for the fact she is already a prodigious cello player with a skill that defies her age.

The youngster first started playing the cello at the age of two, and four years on, the precocious youngster has quickly mastered the musical instrument.

She recently performed Lights and Shadows by Rudolf Matz at the Feast of Sound and Song in front of 300 awe-struck audience members.

Her mother Retha told CTV News: "When Luka was born she got a viola to play with as a toy. For her it's a very natural thing.

"She just loves the sound and is exposed to a lot of classical music. She has perfect pitch, which really helps her. She loves the music. She would cry, the music is so beautiful. She'd really feel it in her heart."

Her talent has, in part, been nurtured by the Academy of Music program, which she has been part of since the age of three.

It's a specially designed music course that develops the musical skills of young singers and instrumentalists.
