Gifts for Music Lovers, American Gifts, Gifts for Piano Players Sonia Nair, 14, pictured with her sister, Nidhi Nair, 9. The two have performed a unique piece titled “Tidal Wave” based on the ever popular “Heart and Soul”. Sonia created the piece for the two of them, because her younger sister loved playing the melody with her sister’s fabulously creative piano part.



 In 8th grade, Sonia Nair has been studying piano for five years with teacher, Dr. Anne D. Young. From an early age, she became interested in composing music and recreating songs by ear. The rest is history. Outside of school and piano, her interests include competing in track and field meets, performing dance routines, participating in Girl Scouts, and spending time with her younger sister. Sonia also enjoys traveling with family, completing science experiments, cooking, and helping her community.
