Guy Documents 18 Months Of Learning To Play Piano, From 'Complete Beginner' To Virtuoso

June 15, 2017


This is a video of Jordan Nexhip documenting the first 18 months of learning to play the piano. He says he starts as 'a complete beginner', but I feel like he at least already had the fundamentals down because I actually am a complete beginner and I can't do anything but bang my head on the keys and scare my dog. Also, how about putting some pants on next time, Jordan? You know you're filming yourself, why are you in your boxers? After just 8-9 months of practice, Jordan is already playing Beethoven's 'Für Elise', although he claims he practiced 'A LOT' those two months. Impressive, but do you know what I was busy doing those two months? "Getting mad play from the ladies?" What? Wait, yes -- let's go with that. Just forget what I was going to say about spending 220 hours replaying through The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Marcus O, who agrees practice makes perfect. Plus performance enhancing drugs.

    TIL the difficulty of Fur Elise is a hot topic in Piano land:


    I can play chopsticks, but only with a helper

    Glad to see that after only a few months he finally found his pants.

    Hmm... 18 months to get good at something... Not worth it in the least.

    Unless it's sex in which case frequent practice is just all sorts of fun.

    I've been playing on and off for 25+ years, and wish I was good as he says he was after 2 months. There's NO way he would've gotten that good with his left/right hand co-ordination after 2 months.
