Wish I had started music when I was that young. smile

It is good but mainly just arpeggios and scales. Rather basic techniques.

Here he is a little more recently:



Cute kid, but not the most amazing 6 year old I have heard.

I'm just sayin'.

Ryan lives here in Vancouver. The family recently purchased a Fazioli. They just got back from the factory.

4 Year Old Boy Plays Piano Better than Any Master?

Puh-leez.

Hugely talented?
---Looks and sounds that way

How he stands up against other prodigies?
---Don't know. Never heard any at that age,
probably comparable.

More recent YouTube performance on Ellen?
---Clearly being groomed in the LangLang tradition.
If you like that sort of thing, you'll like his performance.
---Anybody else hear the finger smears in the right hand?
Sounded like his 4th finger wasn't articulating very
well when playing 3-4-5 to me. (not to be harsh, but I'm
commenting on the OP's thread title and this kid playing
better than any master). Hopefully, his teachers will be
able to help him through those technicalities and help him
express his (formidable) talents more effectively.

Plays better than any master?
---Not so much, at least, now.
Later, maybe.

Still, given his talent, and the family commitment behind him (did I read that the family is buying him a Fazioli?), he's got a shot at real greatness, and I hope he attains it.

I'm looking forward to his "mature" work, say around age 8 when he does his Mendelssohn G minor debut, or something similar.

And now, back to work. Good Day to All.
