    My 9 yr old just started playing the xylophone. Since she already plays piano I thought she was picking it up quick, but that video was insane !

    I wasn't too surprised. I'm more awed by the 2 year olds that have mastered algebra.

    Shoot. I can't watch it over my dial-up connection because the video is so bandwidth intensive. I can't even watch the low-bandwidth videos on that site.

    Considering how malnourished people in North Korea are, I wouldn't be surprised is that "kid" was actually about 23.

    I think they should have titled that "How to make every parent in the world be disappointed in their 3 year old child".

    Absolutely amazing.

    My little guy is equally talented on the xylophone and keyboard. He just plays in a more, uh, avant-garde style. Strong Cecil Taylor influence. [​IMG]

    Just not possible in my case...[​IMG]

    Yeah, you're right. Though my 9 yr old has only just started the xylophone, I have hope because her trombone skills at 3 yrs were unmatched.

    Had to give it up though, the temptations of Bourbon St were too much for the little ones....

    The thing is, North Korea (while being a very opressive regime, and that is far as the political talk goes) has some pretty intensive art/music culture. There are a few websites I have come across of people who have visited North Korea and have seen people practicing/training for their particular specialty. They take their work very seriously and train like you wouldn't believe.

    That may be true for many adults or even "mature" children, but do you think this 3 yr old knows the value of hard work and training/practice?

    I wonder how hard the parents pushed her to learn this and if they were too hard on her to get it right.

    She obviously looks like she really enjoys it though.

    I don't know, there was just something odd about watching that.

    Either
    1. The kid is that good but not 3 (This one has my vote)

    2. The kid is 3 but isn't that good (IE she wasn't the one playing)

    3. she really is that good and that happy.

    when watching it something just didn't look right, its almost like watching a muppet playing. You know her head was doing things sometimes that weren't in sink with what her hands were doing. It was probably the cloths she was wearing, combination of the bright colors and the baggyness made her look odd.

    If you think it's some North Korean conspiracy, that clip is in the Japanese language.

    Really quite amazing... at 3, I think I was still very much entraced by Play-Dough and wood blocks. [​IMG]

    Now, Rob, you've graduated to spasmodic flying gerbils. [​IMG]
