HOWARD — At the age of 3, Timothy Noble came home from church one Sunday and started picking out tunes on the piano. Today, at the ripe old age of 12, his schedule is filled with performance requests, both locally and out of state, and he has a CD of his work available for sale. Timothy plays sacred and patriotic music.
At an age when most kids would be playing sports, hanging out with friends or playing video games, Timothy spends much of his free time at the piano, practicing or working on his arrangements of the music he plays. He estimates he spends four to five hours a day at the piano. He also likes to ride his bike, play a little basketball and fish, but those just seem to be for a break from the piano.
He also helps at his father’s business, Kacy Architectural Millwork, and does yard work and other chores around the house. He has been home-schooled, but is going to attend Temple Christian Academy in the fall.
Timothy’s parents, Kevin and Cynthia Noble, recognized that his interest needed to be encouraged.
