    Does anyone recognize this short??

    Ok, so I have the basic plot and I was wondering, hoping if someone can tell me who the author might be.

    Plot: A child living in the woods one day finds a house with a piano, and starts composing music. Turns out he's being secretly recorded.

    One day someone alters this "experiment" by leaving a record player and music, hearing this, it "destroys" the naive way in which he had been composing.

    Thats all I can remember.

    Is it a Bradbury short? Bova? Any information you can think of would be appreciated.

    Sounds a lot like "Unaccompanied Sonata" by Orson Scott Card - it doesn't fit the description exactly but is pretty close (though that only covers the beginning of the story)
