Chooka Parker is a self taught musician from Australia. He sits at the piano and plays. Whatever comes to mind. He simply makes it up as he goes along.

No composing; no practicing scales; no nothing but the music that pours out from his heart through his fingertips and onto the keyboard.

I too, get goosebumps when I listen to him play.

Chooka was 16 years old in 2011 when this show aired in Australia. Amazing!

For the more classically inclined, here is Chooka’s variations on Beethoven’s Für Elise. (Bagatelle No. 25 in A Minor) Made up, of course, as he goes along!

Chooka: You are amazing!
