This 5-Yr-Old Prodigy Can Play 5 Instruments — And Mix His Own Music!

He very recently started kindergarten, but Miles is already well on his way to becoming a well-known musician with hundreds of thousands of fans.

Ever since he was a baby, Miles has had an interest in music. So much so that he’s been able to learn how to play the guitar, ukulele, drums, piano, and bass all before turning 5 years old!

As unbelievable as that may sound, playing instruments isn’t where his talents end. Miles has even learned how to mix his own music. For some perspective, there are jobs dedicated solely to being a sound mixer for musicians. That means that there are tons of talented stars who aren’t even able to do what this 5 year old can!

To share his mind-blowing abilities with the world, Miles’ parents run an Instagram and YouTube account where they show off clips of their son’s process. It’s one thing to hear about what he can do, but it’s even crazier to see him in action.

The video below shows Miles starting a new project the day before his first day of kindergarten. It features his favorite song from when he was only 18 months old: “Return of the Mack” by Mack Morrison.

He may have trouble spelling words like “harmony” but he has no problem recreating songs! He loves to learn how to play his favorite songs, but this sweet boy also has a blast working on his little sister’s favorite song: “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” by Green Day.

Miles clearly has the talent to be a one-man-band, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t open to collaborating with other artists. He has other musician friends around his age, and they love to make music together!

One of his most recent collabs featured 7 year old Justin Wilson II. With Miles making the track and singing the vocals and Justin showing off his drumming skills, they created an amazing cover of “Black or White” by Michael Jackson. The end result is stunning, and watching them both happily dance along to something worked so hard on is absolutely heartwarming.

With a following of nearly 250,000 on Instagram and YouTube combined, this prodigy has a bright future ahead of him. He’s even garnering attention from the likes of music legends like Lenny Kravitz who once left a comment on a video saying, “Love everything about this.”

We’re absolutely speechless at what Miles has been able to accomplish in just five years, especially since for much of that time he wasn’t even able to walk or talk. Most importantly, though, we’re so happy that he’s found something he’s so passionate about!

Watch part two of Miles playing “Return of the Mack” below (it’s the video that Kravitz commented on!) and don’t forget to share.
