Amazing musical kids: These little ones can really play! (Video)

Why Did the Paycheck Fairness Act Get Voted Down?

You don't have to be a Tiger Mother to raise a musical genius. These five pint-size performers seem to have been born knowing how to play-and honestly seem in love with the music.

Here, 8-year-old Jonny Mizzone plays Earl Scruggs's "Flint Hill Special" on the banjo while his older brothers accompany him on the fiddle (that's Robbie, 12) and guitar (Tommy, 13).

These five tiny guitarists are perfectly in sync. Keep an eye out for the little girl in the middle giving the nod to the other players-obviously, she's in charge.

It takes a long time to learn how to play the violin with such emotion, intensity, and clarity, but somehow Brianna Kahane mastered it by the time she was 6. Here she is playing "La Cinquantaine" on a tiny, 1/8-size violin.

Emily Bear played piano at the White House when she was just 6 years old. Not only does she play like a virtuoso, she writes her own music as well. Here she is performing one of her own creations, called "Northern Lights," at age 7. Please note: She's so tiny, the piano is outfitted with special, raised pedals.

5-year-old Jonah is destined for the stage. Here he is rocking out on the drums to "Tom Sawyer" by Rush, a challenge for many adults, let alone a kid who's still in kindergarten.
