I recall submitting a link to Youtube in one the forum topics....it was of a small(er) girl playing an Impromptu by Reinhold (spelling? Mr. John Robson submitted a recording and it is under the "_Various" composers page).....too bad I can't find that damn link.

yes that's the one. it's a good performance considering how young she is and how small her hands are.

This is not Youtube, but the kid is nothing short of talented:

then scroll down just a little bit and click on the very first picture of the 2001 Kawai (priced at 21,000)

enjoy.

Ok, now this is disturbing! A 4 year old boy playing Bach's Partita in C-minor (by memory)

EDIT:

As the title suggests, he is a true master in the making:

That depends. In addition to playing with metronome sometimes, are you willing to count out loud if and when required for new rhythms? If no, the punishment here has become that if you give any attitude about counting 1+2+3+4+ out loud in English when requested, then you must instead do it in German. "Eins und Zwei und Drei und Fier und!".


What about French? Un et deux et trois et quatre? Or Spanish? Uno y dos y tres y cuatro? :wink: Perhaps Polish would be better?

My teacher was never strict and cold. He was a nice guy who helped when I truly struggled, but most of the time he sat near me on the right side of the piano and commented a few times. I want someone with a meter stick and who is not hesitant to use it!


I prefer Japanese, ichi, ni... :lol:

I say "shi" for the single digit 4 and "yon" for the 40's and such. (Like, 44 would be yon ju shi.) That's how it was taught to me by a friend of mine from Tokyo.

Also on youtube is a series called "Imagine... Being a Concert Pianist"
a really amazing look into the world of these great masters.
It focuses on an 11 year old kid named Benjamin Grosvenor.
His musicality is unbelievable.

I watched the video of that 13 yr old korean girl playing chopin etude op.10 no.4. Her fingers are like sticks and they look horrible.

you want a real child prodigy, take a look at the videos of this little japanese girl Ami Kobayashi.
She is so young but plays with so much expression etc. http://www.youtube.com/user/klingsor93
