Music can truly change someone’s entire day. It has the power to make up laugh, cry or shout ‘amen’ at the top of our lungs. There are so many different genres of music and sounds that everyone can truly find something that they enjoy.
Viktoriya Yermolyeva knew she was meant to perform from a very young age. In fact, she was in kindergarten when her parents were told that Vika had perfect pitch. Over the years, this talented pianist studied and performed classical music at some of the most prestigious schools and concert venues in the world.
Vika absolutely loves playing classical songs on the piano, but she felt herself drawn to another unlikely genre of music, rock. That’s when she decided to embrace her inner rocker and started making online videos of her incredible piano arrangements of popular rock tunes. There’s something about taking a heavy metal song and turning it into something more classical and elegant that truly makes you appreciate all that music can offer.
Today, Vika is visiting a piano showroom in Vienna and she noticed a beautiful Baroque Grand piano. She knew right then and there that she had to sit down at this instrument and play one of her famous arrangements.
Just listen as she starts to play ‘Chop Suey’ from the heavy metal band System Of A Down. This song sounds so different on a piano. I just love how Vika is embracing all forms of music and combining them all to make her own unique sound. Who else wants to hear more from this talented pianist?
