Watch one very patient conductor as he gradually manages to get a group of 3-5 year-olds to play the piano together in this fascinating video.
The video, entitled Mini Maestros and made by Swedish insurance company Folksam, shows the conductor as he first meets the group of 15 children, all students at a preschool in Klara.
At first, he struggles to get them to calm down, but after some serious effort and five weeks of rehearsal, he's able to lead them in a performance of Erik Satie's Gymnopedie No. 1.
Describing one breakthrough moment, the conductor says: "The kids suddenly surprise you, and you think: wow, where did this come from?"
