Self-taught flautist

This young man has taught himself to play the flute. I just heard him say so on a BBC World Service piece on the Iraqi Youth Orchestra. The same we heard about a double bass player and a cellist.
What extraordinary obstacles they have overcome to be what they are and, at the moment, where they are: the Bonn Beethoven Festival. Deutsche Welle story here.
