In Alan Walker's book Franz Liszt: The Virtuoso Years (Ithaca: 1983) • Father encouraged Franz Liszt to play the piano from memory at age six. • He also learned to sight read music. • He was encouraged to improvise on the piano. Your Paper Will Note • That Liszt was a probably the most gifted child protégé at his time (stated in your words). • This is okay since it was reported in several sources; list those sources in your bibliography Your Paper Will Also Note • That Mr. Liszt encouraged his son to sight read and improvise at age 6. • Need to cite if written as follows: – Franz Liszt's father encouraged him as early as age six to practice skills which later served him as an internationally recognized prodigy (Walker 59). – Alan Walker notes that, under the tutelage of his father, Franz Liszt began work in earnest on his piano playing at the age of six (59).
