This 5-Year-Old Boy Plays Piano Like a Professional

It is hard to imagine that the fluent piano music in the video above comes from a boy’s hands — and he is only 5 years old! Evan was born in California, U.S.A.

His parents are not interested in music, and had no intentions to give him any piano lessons. When Evan was two-and-a-half years old, his parents gave him a toy piano. Evan was so interested in the piano that he played it all the time and enjoyed listening to the sounds it made.

Because of Evan’s deep enthusiasm for his toy piano, his parents then bought him an electrical one. Since then, the instrument has inflamed Evan’s passion and talent for music. At the age of 3, Evan could play perfectly the tunes of simple nursery rhymes that he had just heard — at the time he hadn’t had a piano lesson.

Evan’s musical talent has astonished both his parents and his piano teacher. Although he is just 5, he can read and comprehend a piece of complicated musical movement. Moreover, he can compose songs for the piano and also tune up the piano.

Listening to the music, people would consider that it is a performance by a professional pianist with a 10 or 20 year career behind him. Nevertheless, it is only the beginning for Evan’s musical career.

Listen for yourself and see if you think he is as good as we say!
