We first saw Young Piano playing some keys to some of Kanye West’s greatest hits and immediately we knew we had to hunt him down and find out more. So we found him and this is what he had to share with us.
You’ve been uploading videos since 2009, what made you want to share all this talent with the world?
I was 15 years old when I created my YouTube Channel ‘YoungPianoTV’. 6 years before, I started taking classical piano lessons in my small hometown in Germany – 10.000 inhabitants.
Instead of practicing the classical songs for my lessons, I preferred to create my own compositions and I found out that I have the talent to play popular songs on the piano by ear. My friends convinced me to make a YouTube Channel and because of the great feedback I had received, I was motivated and realised that you can inspire people from all over the world by sharing your talent on the Internet.
