Dad baffles TikTok with his ability to learn ‘any’ song on the piano in just 30 seconds

A dad is going viral on TikTok thanks to his daughter’s video of his impressive piano-playing talent.

The clip comes courtesy of musician Liza Kaye, who posts under the username @lzkaye2 on TikTok. Her video, which has drawn over 3 million videos in its first day online, shows how her dad can allegedly learn “any” song by ear — usually in less than 30 seconds.

“My dad can play anything by ear!” Kaye captioned her post.

The TikTok starts with Kaye picking a song for her dad. She ultimately selects “Need to Know” by Doja Cat, a song that, in theory, the average dad probably hasn’t heard before. Still, her father picks it up in seconds.

First, Kaye lets her dad hear the song for about 15 seconds. Then she asks if he’s ready.

“Alright, you got it?” she says.

Within moments, her dad plays a full piano rendition of the track.

The video largely amazed TikTok users. Even the official account for Spotify chimed in, calling the feat “incredible.”

“This is so impressive,” another user wrote.

“Your dad has a golden ear,” another added.

Of course, some users questioned whether or not the clip was real. In response, Kaye posted another video, in which she texted her dad and asked him to learn Lil Nas X’s song, “Industry Baby.” He allegedly sent a full version within minutes.
