I have no idea how this is even possible.
The physicality required to play the piano should be beyond a 4-year old’s capacity. Playing like this should hurt his fingers.
The intellectual requirements should be beyond a 4-year old’s capacity. And where the heck can a 4-year old find the passion to play like this? Hasn’t he ever been seduced by TV?
I can’t imagine how any parent can teach this much to a child of this age. Did they force him to learn? Of course not. But if they didn’t force him, how did they teach him to love the piano so intensely?
Apparently, one or both of his parents are pianists and the child simply loved and therefore wanted emulate his parents’ talent from a very early age.
But, even so, this video is very hard for me to understand. This kid is a minor miracle.
