Elderly Man Astonishes Shoppers With Incredible Piano Playing
Kirstie Sutheran uploaded this very interesting video in December of last year that portrays one of those memorable and beautiful moments in life that just really promote feelings and emotions of positivity and lightness. With all of the negativity in the world today, it is imperative that people actively and intentionally take time each day to seek out positive experiences. This video contains one of those experiences.
In this video, viewers will see an extremely musically talented older man who has been caught on camera adeptly playing the piano in a charity shop. The gentleman, who has not been identified, was caught on camera by a passerby who was astonished with his piano playing skills. Playing an upbeat tune, the man draws a large crowd in the Goodwill store. There are two main pieces of this video that are of a great deal of importance. It is suggested that viewers actually watch this video twice, focusing on one of the pieces each time. Here is the breakdown for those two topics: during your first watch of the video, just sit back and enjoy the music. There is something to be said about the power that music has over a person’s life and well-being. Research shows that music, classical music in particular, calms the mind and expands a person’s horizons. This really is true. Even those who are not avid listeners of classical music can benefit from it.
It is perfectly alright even if you do not feel like you know anything about art and classical music. You do not have to be a connoisseur of the arts to appreciate the calming effects that this music has on your mind, body, and soul. The man in the video playing the piano does appreciate these traits, and it is clear that he wants to impart a sense of peace with all of the people surrounding him. This experience was also undoubtedly calming for him as well.
After you have had a moment to just enjoy the beautiful sound coming from the ivory keys, watch the video one more time. During this second viewing, pay attention to the onlookers around the man. It is very interesting to watch the reactions of the people in the crowd. You will notice a very specific change in their mood and mannerisms. Everyone around him immediately calms after listening to the pianist for a few moments. They are absolutely amazed at the man’s talent, and they cannot tear themselves away from the spectacle. Some of the spectators even go to find a place to sit down, which clearly shows a shift in their dispositions.
This man has touched all of the people in this store in just a few moments. Every one of these people surely left the store feeling more uplifted and calmer. This is a beautiful scene. It teaches everyone who watches the video that one person really can make a difference in the lives of other people in very simple ways. So many people do not get involved in helping others and have every possible excuse (mainly claiming they just would not know where to start). However, it has been made clear that you do not have to be extravagant to have a positive effect on someone else’s life. Little things can make all the difference.
