His feet can’t even reach the pedals, but that doesn’t stop this pint-sized prodigy from showing off his mad piano skills!

Some people are lucky enough to be born with all the talents and abilities of the late, great musical geniuses of human history. Take this 5-year-old Italian boy wonder, for example.

While most kids his age are taking naps and learning their ABC’s in kindergarten, Alberto Cartuccia Cingolani is schooling adults on the finer points of Mozart with his expert-level precision and grace.

It’s not something you can just learn by taking a few piano lessons. Some things are just hard-coded in your DNA!

Not much is known about Alberto other than the fact that he’s from Italy and is the exact opposite of low-key. But, if the number of smartphones being held up by onlookers is anything to judge him by, then it says he’s definitely film-worthy.

With fast-flying fingers and the intensity of someone who has many more years of experience on him, Alberto isn’t afraid to show the crowd just how bold, fierce, and brilliantly gifted he is.

Notice the lack of sheet music on the deck in front of him. This little guy is busting out all the notes from memory!

Some might even say that it’s “muscle memory” from a past lifetime of composing and playing in the grand palaces of Vienna.

Hey Mozart, is that you in there?

Speaking of Mozart, the piece Alberto is playing is known as Piano Sonata No. 16 in C major, K. 545, which is quite a mouthful. You might be more familiar with the much simpler and flowy “Sonata Facile.”

Although Mozart was famous for performing in swanky venues for the uber wealthy, he was actually one of the OG coffee house musicians back in the day.

In fact, Vienna’s Café Frauenhuber, an old stomping ground that both Mozart and Beethoven frequented, is still open for business. Imagine indulging in a wiener schnitzel and a dark roast, while blissfully enjoying the sounds of Mozart wafting through the air. What an eclectic combo!

Although Alberto won’t be doing any concerts at a Dunkin’ or Starbucks anytime soon, he definitely has the musical chops to take him far in life.

His exceptional abilities speaks to people in ways that words alone can never convey. It’s just something you literally feel deep in your bones!

However, some people don’t believe this piano prodigy is “real” and have tried to theorize how a 5-year-old can sport a haircut circa-1983 without people noticing.

One Reddit user, @potato13254 said, “this proofs that the world is a simulation” while another, @SLODGH, clapped back with:

“Exactly. In my 45 years on this planet, I have never experienced anything close to suggesting that this would be possible with a real human 5 year old. We are in a simulation, OR that is a robot, OR it’s some 60 year old with a rare disease that keeps him small and looking young. The haircut is sus.”

Benjamin Button, are you also hiding in there, too?

Alberto’s aptitude for music is far beyond measure, and hearing him play will send shivers through your soul.

This little boy is the perfect example of what it means to grow into your destiny and courageously own your gifts. We should all be so lucky!
