Neil Nayyar, multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire, in a live interview on Listening Lyrics, Friday, July 22, at 4 p.m.

Neil Nayyar plays 117 musical instruments from around the world.

Chances are if you love a particular type of music, Neil plays it, and he plays it well. Classical, Bollywood, jazz, rock, and sounds from all over the world flow from this musician, but this is not the only amazing thing about him.

Neil’s parents credit much of his ability and love of music to Mozart classics he listened to while still in the womb. However, his talent didn’t surface until he was five years old when he took a drum class and wowed everyone, and this was just the beginning.

A lot of Neil’s talent and abilities as a multi-instrumentalist are natural, but he leaves nothing to chance. In fact, he practices his music six hours each day. The child prodigy is receiving training from 25 musical professionals both locally and internationally.

Neil holds the Assist Foundation’s world record as the youngest person to play all those instruments from all parts of the planet. The Assist Foundation provides a lot of resources for secondary education opportunities for young people around the world.

Neil sings in 6 languages. He is releasing his first music book and Music Album next month. Neil is also selected for Grammy Camp (Recording Academy/Grammy Awards). Recently, he is featured in Two Honda H-RV Commercials. Currently, he is giving film scores to two films. He will be representing KIDS Music Day as the spokesperson

on Oct. 7th. There will be over 1000 locations offering special events for kids playing music in 50 Cities. More information:Kids Music Day | KeepMusicAlive.
