Five years of piano playing, and a life-long love of music for one baby girl.
A pianist dad has documented playing to his daughter, from birth to five years old.
From tiny hands curiously tickling the ivories, to singing along to her father’s rendition of Mancini’s ‘Moon River’, a young musician blossoms...
Barton’s video, ‘Daddy-Daughter 20 Piano Moments’, has unsurprisingly been watched by more than 3.6 million music-loving people on social media.
“How wonderful! For you both. She will forever have a love of music and of Daddy. He is an amazing pianist! I love Moon River!!!” one user commented.
Another wrote: “How precious to watch a father take so much interest and time with his daughter.”
While the film is a tangible product of a dad’s one-to-one musical moments with his daughter, those countless hours spent together at the keyboard will be the real gift.
