This is Karim Kamar playing the public piano in London’s St Pancras International train station. Videos of public piano performances have become very popular online, partly due to their authentic nature, but also due to the weird and wonderful moments a public audience can bring.
During Karim’s latest public piano performance at St Pancras station, a musically curious toddler got more than they bargained for when approaching the musician. Karim showed what music is all about by engaging with the kid and providing a moment everyone there will never forget.
Karim chooses to teach the curious toddler Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, a well known song – perfect for beginners and children to learn as a first song on any instrument.
Karim has gained millions of view across his social channels for public piano performances such as the videos embedded in this article. He has performed in multiple well know venues such as Ronnie Scotts and The Royal Albert Hall.
Although Karim has multiple very successful videos on his social media channels, this latest video teaching the toddler how to play has sparked huge interest. Let’s face it, we all love to see a moment showcasing the best of humanity play out in front of us!
One commenter said, “This guy is a incredible musician and a even kinder person his gift is so refreshing I look forward to his video’s because it dispels the norms in society and shows music connects us all powerful.”
Music has the power to lift us all and it’s wonderful to see such great humanity, talent and community spirit all in one uplifting video.
If often takes just one moment for a child to be inspired to embark on a musical journey in life, whether that moment was playing “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” in St Pancras Station for this toddler, only time will tell.
