It was just another ordinary day in a mall in Japan when one preteen decided to shake things up a bit. In the video, the young girl is seen taking a stroll with a friend. To everybody else, they looked like the usual pair of mall goers, out for another day of hanging out and killing time. The two girls, all smiles, were spotted casually approaching a large drum set arranged in an open area of the mall.

The innocent looking twelve-year-old sat behind the drums, looking shy and unknowing. She picked up both drumsticks carefully, then slowly banged each stick on the drum, seemingly trying to figure out how to create the right beats.

Still feigning inexperience with the instrument, the young girl continued to make awkward sounds with the drums, after which she received polite applause from onlookers. (Don’t you just love the Japanese?) You can also see shoppers from the same floor and higher levels of the mall glancing curiously at her. She kept up the act for a minute more, until she decided to turn things around and surprise the growing audience gathering around her.

The preteen, looking calm as ever and ready to put on a show, began drumming a gradually increasing beat. Her impressive hand-eye coordination, coupled with the swift way her feet worked the pedals, produced sounds which no one seemed to believe were coming from a sweet-looking twelve-year-old girl.

The people watching were stunned. Some of them eagerly whipped out their mobile devices to record it, while some called the attention of their companions to watch. You’ll also notice the transition in their facial expressions – from curious yet doubtful glances to awed smiles.

The relaxed way the twelve-year-old played the drums indicates years of experience and an undeniable passion in music. Whoever taught her must be incredibly proud.

Without missing a beat, she continued playing the drums like a pro as if it were the most ordinary thing in the world. Kids and grownups alike stayed to watch her perform, clearly impressed with her drum-playing skills. Her petite frame behind the large drum set made the sight more delightful. After all, it isn’t everyday you see a charming young girl banging on the drums like a rockstar.

Her surprise performance was a welcome treat for the shoppers. She probably had the whole mall buzzing! This girl proves that age isn’t an indicator of what a person is capable of, and that each one has the ability to surprise people – especially the doubtful ones who reduce our value and talents based on limited perceptions.
