There’s an interesting You-tube video of a 4-year-old playing way more difficult pieces than any 4-year-old should be. Ever. After I got over my skepticism I had to admit this kid is amazing for a 4-year-old.
I take issue with the title of the video, though. “Amazing: 4-Year-Old Boy The Piano Better Than Most Professionals.”
Professional whats? Plumbers? (nothing against plumbers – just my gut reaction because of other music humour making the rounds, comparing unfortunate wages of musicians to wages of fortunate plumbers). This kid plays way more notes way better than a lot of people, but definitely not better than professional musicians. Let’s get a grip on reality.
Thank you, Joe, for sharing. And you’re right – you didn’t start early enough and you didn’t choose your parents wisely!
