When a 12 Year Old Plays Better Than You

When a 12 Year Old Plays Better Than You


Hi guys, welcome to another episode of TwoSet Violin. Today, we want to learn a new piece, and the piece is called… “Zigeunerweisen”. It’s a very popular piece, I always have trouble saying it, and I don’t know if I’ve said it right just then. We’ve never actually officially learned the piece before. So of course, we have to go online and seek out recordings to see what it’s supposed to sound like. All right, who’s going first? Scissors, paper, rock! Dammit. You go first. So of course, now you gotta try and play it. *snickers* My bow broke… *sigh* Did you hear that she’s 12 years old, Brett? She’s 12.
*sigh* Dude, I think I ruined it. What? Oh, f… Oh…! Time to buy a new bow. What’re you doing? There we go. All right. *chuckles* She’s so confident. I wonder if she gets nervous. So calm. So in control. So in tune. Such good tone. Such bow control! Good luck. *sigh* – We haven’t even gotten to the fast part yet! That’s a…
– I know. Whoa. Oh. *gasp*
Whoa! Oh ho ho!!! She’s so like… – As if it’s so easy…
– I know. Okay, okay. Okay! – It’s your turn bro.
– All right, bring it on! I need some molto space. What key is it in? C…what? C major, really? No, it’s not! – It is!
– Oh is it? – No, A minor.
– It’s—it doesn’t— Yeah, it doesn’t sound like C major. It is sad that I actually tried. I feel you man. I don’t even think I could like… …do vibrato properly at all. I still can’t do vibrato like she does. And I’m 25!
*sigh* *laughs* And the “harmonicy” in there! “Harmonics”. No no no no no…stop, stop, stop.
*laughs* – That’s enough.
– That’s too much. *chuckles* Dude, we’re not even in shot, but doesn’t matter. Oh, I hit it! Nice. We’re almost at the end, guys! – We nearly finished learning the piece.
– I know. This is how you learn, we’re so close. Tempo has to be the same. Alright, before you start, I just want to check something. Yeah, that’s right. Standing ovation. Good. People can appreciate talent. *laughs* Oh! So my goal, to the end. When you learn a piece, what’s very important is… …you have to keep the tempo. I guess that’s how you learn a piece. Dude I can’t play…I couldn’t sightread… *laughs* Thanks for watching.

  1. why I am here? hahaha i dont even know how to play any musical instruments hahaha but well i love listening to piano and violin music… such an eargasm.

  2. So I played the viola for 1 year in elementary school and watching you guys I wish I never stopped. I played the trumpet from 6th grade through high school but I rarely pick up my trumpet anymore and my embochure is toast lol; I plan on trying to get back in the swing of things. I've gotten chills and goosebumps before but this was another level.

  3. When they ask you how you are, and you just have to say that you're fine, when you're not really fine, but you just can't get into it because they would never understand.

  4. The fact that her face is so relaxed like this is the easiest thing on earth there’s even a faint smile sometimes n I’m just here with my instrument sounding like a honking whale

  5. lol this is my first time watching this channel, and these 2 guys come across as Asian stoners because they cant play perfect violin lol. Hilarious.

  6. the pianist made the most of the job besides the girl but yet she still looked so bored while playing with that young girl

  7. I honestly think if you guys practice this for some time, you can do it perfectly too 🙂 sight reading is hard, but you guys already did so well

  8. Yo she has appeared on korean tv show the "genius identifying team영재발굴단." It's basically a ling ling show. Must check it out

  9. Theres always an asian who's better than the other asian whos better than the other asian who's better than that one NON Asian who's better than the Asian who doesnt really like to try who's wayyyyyyyyyyyy better than you. (Aka me)

  10. This is so sad watching 2, 25 year old grown up men getting schooled solo by a 12 year old girl, i can literally see their confidence breaking down every second i watch this

  11. I honestly don't understand how ANYONE can look at this and be inspired. I can look at some old, wise master play and be inspired, but seeing a 12 year old play like that… its not inspiring, its just depressing

  12. Comment section:
    80% :people who are impressed and depressed at the same time
    20%: jokes about talented asians

    Me: *still laughing my fr*ckin butt off at 6:23

  13. I only know how to play mario kart and I'm here laughing at these guys trying to hold their shit together at a kid playing violin WHYYY!!? 😀

  14. 0:46 The song and the expression perfectly matched, as if it's telling the purpose of the song, to show what does "sadness" means…lol

  15. She might be twelve but she's probably been playing for at least 10 years. Also being so young her neuroplasitisity is really high which means super fast learning basically.

  16. Sadly for all of us music being part a natural talent is real. Even Plato said while all men could learn music some where touched by the muses. This girl has a muse on her side.

  17. No matter how good you are at something just remember, there is an asian out there 10 times better than you and that’s okay
