It’s never too early to start pursuing your passions, as shown by one young musician. A five-year-old girl is blowing up the internet for her expert-level drumming skills as shown in a recent social media video, India Today reports.
The now-viral clip shows the girl sitting behind a drum set as she gets ready to perform along with a song that is already playing. She begins drumming, and to the surprise of many, exceeds expectations of what a typical five-year-old playing the drums would sound like.
Basketball player Rex Chapman shared the clip to social media, writing, “Unreal…”

Many Twitter users agreed with Chapman. The tweet has gotten over 5,000 retweets and 23,000 likes, with nearly 900,000 views on the video.
Not only does the young musician manage to hit the drums perfectly to the beat, but she also shows off tricks in between. Before the song starts to pick up speed, she succeeds at twirling the drumsticks around between her fingers.
While the clip only shows one minute of her playing, it was enough to convince plenty of Twitter users of the girl’s talent.
Tracy Austin, former professional tennis player and champion, shared the clip to her own Twitter. She wrote, “Extraordinary! She is into it with every fiber of her little body!”
