Fifteen pianos were placed around Cambridge, England and this little prodigy found one of them. Despite his presumably small hands, he manages to play a beautiful rendition of “La Campanella” by Franz Liszt, drawing a small crowd of impressed onlookers.
The pianos are part of a traveling British urban artwork by Luke Jerram called “Play Me, I’m Yours.” The instruments are available in bus shelters, parks, markets and even on ferries for the public to play and enjoy. While it’s currently in Cambridge, the pianos will move to Hangzhou in China in November, and Munich and Boston in 2013.
I love that the pianos are bringing people together through music and showcasing some local hidden talents.

I felt pretty good about my ability to play “Blackbird” on the guitar but now I’m lowering my head in shame after seeing this eight-year-old girl named Zoe Thomson, who shreds her electric guitar with an apathetic expression that says “No big deal, I’m just a child prodigy.”
If you look up more guitar covers of “Stratosphere” by Stratovarius, most of them are older men who have had years of experience. Thomson goes to Newbury Rock School, which I want to believe is run by The School of Rock’s Dewey Finn.
Kuha’o has been playing the piano since he was 3 years old and has been blind since infancy. Now, he’s 15 and can play most songs after hearing them just once.
The video editor wanted to see what would happen if Kuha’o heard dubstep song “Cracks” by Freestylers and the result is unbelievable!
