Meet pianist Bernie Katzen, the dude that’s taking the internet by storm! He partnered up with Twitch TV to live stream some performances/jam sessions, and since last year, he’s sat in his living room with a 1957 Steinway Grand piano and a keyboard, taking requests making masterpieces out of them.
Then Reddit got a hold of him.
Ha! Classic Reddit.
I guess you could say it was a success, because Bernie Katzen a.k.a. “pianoimproman” has gone from Reddit obsession to Internet hero. Check him out below:
This dude is profesh. He started his formal studies when he was 4, was accepted to the Juilliard School of Music Prep Division at 10 and went on to attend Manhattan’s High School of Music and Art, eventually receiving a Masters degree from Juilliard.
Just goes to show that with hard work, perseverance, and maybe a lil’ help from Reddit, you can accomplish great things…
Assuming Reddit doesn’t downvote you to hell.
