Sure, Mozart composed his first piece of music at five years old. But just watch this 6-year-old’s teeny tiny fingers fly up and down the keyboard – it’s awesome.

Anke Chen has become something of a YouTube sensation in the past year, thanks to her unbelievable (and of course, irritatingly prodigious) piano skills.

Yep, the girl’s insanely talented. Anke only started playing piano just over two years ago, when she began taking piano lessons at the Tianjin Conservatory of Music in China, with her teacher Zhang Feng.

Here she is again, playing Chopin’s Minute Waltz seven months ago:
