Excellent! 
Is that the view that you see everyday... ?!! Wow!!
 
+Trey Ratcliff Very talented! I also enjoyed the dance routine on the deck : ).  You are a very lucky man. All the best. K.
 
Bravo - (you moved a baby grand from Austin to Queenstown?)
 
Thank you +Trey Ratcliff, thank you +Ethan Ratcliff. Very cool!

BTW: What was the reason for your movement to New Zealand? The great view from your door? Would be a reason for me :)
 
Bravo!!!

Awesome job Ethan. I hope you stick with the piano. It is an awesome instrument to play. I played piano for 17 years. It was a lot of fun for me. Anyways.Take care Ethan. Bye.

Oh wow! You are such a PROUD dad - and so you should be : Ethan will be so embarrassed in five years time :-) Watch out H, Shore & H. Zimmer ....
 
+Tim Brown  Yes it was one of the heaviest things we moved from Austin to NZ! hehe
 
+Trey Ratcliff Oh man, that is too adorable. :) You should have your son do the background music for your videos!

+Trey Ratcliff That's one of my favourite pieces from The Lord of the Rings movies. Howard Shore composed an amazing score and Ethan definitely has some talent.

Really talented young man!  Love the view from your patio!

+Trey Ratcliff Congratulations on 4 million followers, only 400,000 more and you'll have more followers then the total population of New Zealand! (Not counting sheep obviously.)

That is so awesome!!  I can't wait for the Hobbit and Ethan has now inspired me to go get the music so I can play at home too! :)  Thanks for sharing!!
 
I have been following you for two years plus and your work have been a inspiration for me as a photographer, but this post have been the best and the most touching that I ever seen. Good job Trey.
 
thanks, Ethan, if there had been music from the Lord of the Rings when I was learning piano I might have actually learned how to play.
 
That is very cool! Thanks Ethan... nice work. 
 
Very sweet … what took my breath away was the glimpse of the view outside.  OMG that's awesome!!
 
That took concentration. Kudos! 
 
Ethan's well-chosen and well-played song, combined with that all-too-short shot of the landscape outside, was utterly beautiful!  Thank you.
 
Excellent work Ethan. Lovely change of tempo at the end.Thank you. :0)
 
That was lovely. Thanks for sharing your son's talent with us.
