Sometimes it is best to step aside and let the young ones take center stage.
Musical battles can be pretty competitive moments especially when two greats are on stage.
Talent face-offs are a good way to put your skills to the test, but they aren’t just about talent—they’re also a mind game.
If you have ever been a part of one, you know what we’re talking about.
The situation can be intimidating for the contestants All you can do is take your turn and hope your opponents have no answer to your moves.
It is about using all your knowledge and making decisions in a split second.
We know how David and Goliath’s fight ended, but what happens when a student faces his own teacher?
This is what happened to the young man in the video below, despite how young he was.
The boy in the video’s name is Reece, and he was fond of drums very early in his life.
Reece has his own YouTube channel where he goes by the name Reece The Musician.
In one of his videos “My Humble Beginnings,” he shared a short clip of his childhood where you can see him practicing on the drums. Even though he hadn’t perfected the art yet, it’s clear that he had the beginnings of a great talent that would develop in the years to come.
In this video facing his teacher, it’s clear he has come a long way!
Reece had a battle with his teacher in his school—and we have to give him an A on his performance!
Reece and his English teacher had a great performance, and all the parents and students were there to witness it.
They both started with something simple and later ramped things up a bit.
Reece’s English teacher had some good beats of his own, but Reece wasn’t holding anything back!
They both exchanged some fine blows with each other. They started with a simple rhythmic beat but after every turn, they switched gears.
People were amused by the contest, and nobody knew what the limit would be for these two.
Just like everyone else, Reece’s own teacher was proud of his protege’s performance.
Every teacher is proud of their student and you can see that pride in the teachers’ face.
In the end, Reece and his teacher performed a beat together and showed each other some mutual respect.
It isn’t just some ordinary feat to compete with your teacher and put on a great performance.
Even so, Reece didn’t disappoint the audience—not his friends, family or his teacher! Since the video was posted, the battle between Reece and his teacher has gone viral and earned more than five million views. Viewers had their own comments on the show as well:
“Everyone’s talking about how good the teacher is but can we acknowledge how talented that kid is? Amazing drumming right there!! Yo that kid’s dad should be hella proud.”
As videos like this show, if you follow the passions you have from a young age with focus and dedication, there’s no telling where you can go! Congratulations to Reece and his teacher for creating such a magic moment!
