Ethan Bortnick on Jay Leno Video | Amazing Video of Six-Year-Old Piano Prodigy

We’ve all seen child prodigies on television chat shows before, but none quite like Ethan Bortnick. I was quickly won over by this six-year-old cutie when he appeared on The Tonight Show by Jay Leno.

Ethan shows none of the pretentiousness so typical of child geniuses. He’s actually very funny and incredibly honest, particularly when describing his distaste for Aerosmith.

While he’s a very charming guest, Ethan’s there because of his piano prowess. This kid has memorized more than 200 songs, including pieces by Scott Joplin, Mozart, and Bach. Ethan then shows he’s more than just a jukebox by playing one of his original compositions.

    I have watched his performance over and over again. He is the most precious, unpretentious little guy, not to mention talented, that I have ever seen. Friends of mine who have watched the show agree … he is AWESOME!

    I would like to know what he is doing now. How can I follow his career? He must’ve gotten much recognition from the Jay Leno show. I think he will become one of our greatest artists of our times.
