Studies show that listening to music during pregnancy not only puts the mother at ease but leaves a positive effect on the baby. This comes as no surprise as music in general greatly helps in decreasing stress levels, soothing unpleasant moods, and even encouraging productivity. Mothers who share music with their babies, from pregnancy up to infancy, help with the development of their little ones. While this may not ring true for everyone, most people strongly believe that exposing children to music as early as pregnancy significantly boosts creativity and confidence. We don't know for sure if this particular pianist was treated to music when she was still in her mother's womb but we can be sure of one thing: her talent and creativity make her even more special and will surely take her far.
Talent knows no size and age, as proven by a young, blonde pianist named Diane. Her impressive piano playing skills prompted passersby to pause and sit through her performance, with some even documenting it with their mobile devices. If you were simply walking past and didn't bother looking, you would think the music was recorded and played through speakers. She started off with "Halo" and shortly after transitioned to a different song. After minutes of playing "Rolling in the Deep" by Adele, Diane switched to the main theme of the movie Pirates of the Carribbean.
The calm, relaxed manner in which Diane played the piano is a reflection of more than just dedication and years of practice. It shows true passion and a genuine love for music. Her piano playing did not look at all like a stiff performance rehearsed for an audience. For Diane, it was only natural to sit and play upon seeing a piano. Playing three songs flawlessly was a welcome surprise for those coming in and out of the hospital where the amazing moment took place. We can only guess how many people's moods were lifted at the sight of Diane and at the wonderful sound she produced through her skills.
Her little fingers seemed to fly across the keys as she played the familiar tunes. Not once did she look up from the piano as she went from one song to another. You'd think the hospital isn't the right venue for a musical performance but we're positive doctors, nurses, family members, and patients think otherwise. The music that filled the air could have been a much needed dose of stress relief for many.
