Video Game Pianist™ is one of the first musicians to gain recognition for performing live video game music on a solo instrument. He has been acknowledged for starting the trend of people posting videos of themselves playing video game music on various instruments on the Internet. The Internet premiere of his Super Mario Medley video, created at age 17, launched his video game music performance career overnight.
I enjoy playing the piano and video games. By combining these two fun activities, Video Game Pianist™ was born! When I perform video game music, it is so much fun to bring to life the corresponding character or characters in a video game and the video game itself! I realized from having performed in 17 countries, video game music has universal appeal. For example, when I play the Super Mario Brothers theme, I am happy that the music brings so much joy to people. Furthermore, my Super Mario Medley video inspired countless of people around the world to post videos of themselves playing video game music and to start learning how to play the piano. Perhaps it is video game music that will save the world!
