Jessica Flowers, 6, of Carmel, won first place in four categories in the youth division of the 2014 State Fair Piano Competition. The four categories were Youth Classical, Youth Non-Classical, Youth Ragtime, and Primary Ensemble.
Flowers has been playing piano for more than a year and a half now. Her proud parents give credit to her teacher Esther Moy, also of Carmel.
“While it takes the talent of the child to pull this off, we have to give a ton of credit to her teacher since she picked the right songs and provided the correct guidance,” said Jessica’s father Scott Flowers. “As parents, we just do our best to follow her instruction. It continues to amaze us how she recognizes all the small details that we never hear.”
