Power of the keys

October 16, 1998

(Photograph) - Tom Wickens, who is autistic, performed part of a Beethoven work and one of his own compositions at a conference at the University of Hertfordshire on educating children with autism this week. Mr Wickens attends Trinity College of Music, London. He said: "(Autism) does not really affect my work in music." But socially, he said, he lacks confidence - "I tend to be by myself quite a lot."
