Joanna Joy Costa was born with Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC), which means she has limited use of her fingers. Now 15 years old, and with the use of only 4 fingers, this album showcases her classical playing style. Joanna is skilled not only in piano, but is teaching herself how to play the hammer dulcimer.
In Joanna's own words: "Playing these pieces, even with a disability, allows me to enjoy the beauty of music - a beauty I hope to share with others. Having to work harder perhaps than others to perform the pieces gives me an even greater appreciation of the compositions."
