it`s important to pressure kids sometimes, but too much can cause the opposite affect, making them rebel alot more later in life. it`s all about a balance. i know when i first started playing my instrument i was all about quitting, but my parents forced me for the first few years, then i started getting really good and i loved it after that!

Pushing a child to pursue a talent is not child abuse. They may not like it when they are younger; even if they decide to quite later. What it does is gives them discipline that can be used in other aspects of life. Does any one really like going to work every day? I know i don`t. I love my job but I don`t feel like going EVERYDAY! sometimes id rather be riding my motorcycle. However, I know I have to go to pay bills. This sort of thing gives them skills not only at some talent, be it guitar or other,and skills to be used in later in life as adults. *before the flaming* not all kids will benefit* some parents push too hard causing other effects.

There are children all over the world that grow up taking music lessons, many children are forced to play piano for hours at end. This is not child abuse, if so, many of you would be in protective custody.(lol) Although they may not get rich or famous for their abilities, most people learn to appreciate ever to have to learn.

I disagree. American music is just as popular here in the UK (granted, maybe not as much new artists make it in the UK) as our music. And quite a lot of European music as well. But how much Chinese people make it? Absolutely none. I`ve also been to China (It`s great, everyone should go)and they also mainly have American/British music acts as they`re main music. They do have Chinese acts, but they most definately aren`t in the majority.
America is the greatest power an the planet, so it affects every country in the world. China and Chinese culture has virtually no affect on the world, especially in the modern day and especially in the great western powers. So I agree with beternal. I don`t believe these kids, despite being insanely talented, will ever become famous.

beternal: Yes harsh, also wrong. Oddly enough even though America "generally only publish their own" not everyone in the world is forced to listen to that mass produced balls.

In England we generally only listen to our own (because it`s our culture). A bit of American music gets in but no where near as much British music.

Similarly you would imagine that these children could be huge sucesses in their country where "their own" want to listen to them as that sort of music is their culture.

So just because Americans don`t listen to it, it doesn`t mean that they are failures!

Harshest thing I`ll say in a long time but those kids won`t get anywhere...

I mean, sure, they have talent which far exceeds anyone in the `western world` but the fame, money and glory will always end up going to a western person who has the right connections and the `white skin`... sad to say, America has the power and they generally only `publish` their own...

At the end of the day, it will just be another ticky box thing on the `why my housewife is cooler than yours` category.

My mom made me take piano lessons as a child. I didn`t like practicing and eventually quit. Now I regret not continuing the lessons like she wanted me to. I could`ve been great like those kids & get paid to perform instead of the low-paying desk job I have now. Now I spent what little money I earn trying to re-learn those piano lessons I had as a kid. Sigh...

Well if they were born with these skills and overly forceful parents it`s just bad luck for the kid.

Those smiles are so fake, I wonder how many are nervous that they will be beat or disowned if they mess up.

Totally agree about them most likely being forced into this. Who says, "Mommy, I want to be a classically trained guitar player and practice in all my free time. K, thanks."

Say what you will on the whole forcing skill thing, you can`t really prove either side of that argument (I don`t agree with it, but I was started on guitar at four and am happy about it now). The only real issue I`m seeing here is that they are being made to play on guitars WAY too large for their hands. I was too, and ended up paying for it in my teens when I spent over a year correcting technique issues that arose from having too large an instrument for 12 years. They DO make smaller guitars specifically for parents that want to start their children this young, and the parents should invest in those to save their children a good bit of grief a decade down the line.

something about the choreography and precision with which this was executed makes me very sad - Children that young should not be abe to do this.

@BigM
Forcing a skill at a young age is how some of the greats (in whatever field) became great. Take Tiger Woods for instance, awesome golf player, probably wouldn`t have gotten there if dad didn`t put him on the course day-in-day-out.
Besides, how do we know these kids don`t enjoy playing the guitar. If they find it enjoyable, I wouldn`t call it "forcing".

They do not put my guitar skills to shame, not at all, these kids will surely get to the peak of their talents around ten and stop playing guitar to go work in some mine somewhere in china....

Possible child abuse? When I was that age I was enjoying legos, not spending every waking moment in guitar practice.

Two things:

1.They look like creepy dolls.

2. Whenever I see videos of talented little kids like this, it makes me question my existence and what Ive done with my life.
