Heey people! :D

I just made an improvised piano cover of the song "Stay" by Rihanna... It is one of my fav songs in the moment. I have played the piano since I was 8 years old, but I never learned how to read the notes. So I learned everything by listening and trying out to hit the right chords. The cover wont be perfect in terms of arrangement, tempo or hitting the right notes all the time, but playing the piano is my passion (next to art) and I thought maybe it could inspire some of you! ^^ The cover is 100% improvised and it is not a "melody" cover, but only an arrangement of the chords of the song. If you like the video, please subscribe our channel, more videos (art- and music related) will follow! ;) 
If you like the video, you can also share it with your friends! ^^ That would be cool! :D And thumbs up are highly appreciated! :hug:

Here is the video:  www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhjQPo…

P.S.: Sorry for awkward beginning and ending.. xD And sorry for my moves while playing haha :D
P.P.S.: Dont aks why I am wearing a hoody.. I dont know, really... haha

I loved it! I have played the piano since I was very young as well, and while I can read notes, I cannot improvise that well. Thanks for sharing :)

Improvised seriously? Is everyone in your family just ridiculously talented at arts? Your English is great as well have you been in Germany all your life?
It doesn't matter you wore a hoodie I've worn a gas mask :D

Waahhhhh you're so cuuuuute x3 The accent kills me. It's so cool. o:
And you're really good at playing the piano :) You're so passionate. I play the violin, but I don't think I could ever play the piano..... Playing 2 different melodies/harmonies at once is very difficult for me. ^^'

That was very pretty!
It was very refreshing piece to hear.

You looked like you were in your own element, very calm and relaxed, like nothing else mattered, simply the song itself. I could tell you were into the song and you enjoyed it very much!

Very well done over all! Please post another video of you playing piano! I would love to see another!
I shall now show this to all of my friends who play piano!

Wow, you really put your energy into it, like everything else you do.
That's why I always like piano covers better than the original pop songs.
Keep playing it by ear, it's obviously working really well! That way you're sure you only play music that you like.
With those blazing looks you give the camera, don't be surprised if a mob of crazy fangirls starts to follow you around...

Music is my main art form, and even if you can't read sheet music, you have a great ear and your improv technique is very good! If you're ever interested in long-distance collaboration, please drop me a line! I'd love to work on something with you.

That was amazing :) I'm the exact opposite in a way, that I can't learn a song by just hearing it . That's just too hard for me .. but from a sheet music I can study a 3 page song in a few days, if I really like the song :D ( so basically one page a day :) )

Oh and I've played the piano for 7 years under a teachers hand, but 2 years ago I just couldn't anymore . So now I learn by myself :D

Also, I'd recommend a pianist to you, if you already don't know about him ( but because you really like playing the piano, then there is a chance you already know about him ) . His alias is Yiruma and his songs are simply amazing ! My favorites are "Yellow Room", "Kiss the Rain", "Moonlight", "Love Me" and "If I Could See You Again" . I could continue writing them, but it'd be too long of a list :D

Wow, das hört sich super an! Ich hatte zwar 4-5 Jahre Klavierunterricht, aber mittlerweile spiele ich fast gar nicht mehr (und auch nicht so gut wie du) ^^; Sollte ich vielleicht mal wieder, irgendwie habe ich wieder Lust zu spielen :giggle:
Du solltest öfter solche Videos machen! Ich find's auch gut, mal zu sehen, was andere Künstler sonst so machen ;)

Wenn ich aber noch etwas anmerken darf: Du hast beim Spielen so grumpig geguckt, vielleicht aber auch nur hochkonzentriert ^^ Lächel doch mal etwas öfter :) :dummy:
