The Piano Guys

The Piano Guys are an American musical group consisting of pianist Jon Schmidt, cellist Steven Sharp Nelson, videographer Paul Anderson, and music producer Al van der Beek. They gained popularity through YouTube, where in 2010 they began posting piano and cello compositions combining classical, contemporary, and rock and roll music, accompanied by professional-quality videos. In August 2016 the group surpassed one billion views on their YouTube channel, which at that time had nearly 5 million subscribers. Their first six major-label albums, The Piano Guys, The Piano Guys 2, A Family Christmas, Wonders, Uncharted, and Christmas Together each reached number one on the Billboard Classical Albums and New Age Albums charts.

There are videos where there is no commentary in the end; but I feel like it added a bit to the meaning. Either way, this was my first discovery of the PianoGuys, and I will never regret it ^_^

This is a video of the American Heritage Lyceum Philharmonic performing Beethoven's 5 Secrets with Steven Sharp Nelson for ASTA 2015 in Salt Lake City. We are the same orchestra that played in the music video! Steve is such an amazing performer and I have had such an awesome time performing with him on multiple occasions. He is just as good live, as he is in any recordings, if not better!
