I like it because everyone knows his role and he does it with precision and appreciation for the overall sound. I love it that they don’t seem dejected if they have a smaller “bit part” (like closing the lid on the piano? What kind of music does THAT make?).

But I also like it because, together, they accomplish more than any one of them could have done if taken separately — the definition of synergy. That’s the way all good teams should function, if they’re worth their salt.

Finally, I love it that it sounds GREAT! In other words, they’re all skilled — and if you take their efforts as a group, the outcome is fantastic. Great teams are actually more than great attitudes, although attitudes are super important. COMPETENCY matters too… and that’s probably a factor in your team too.

    I am so impressed with The Piano Guys. I showed their videos to a musical friend who got very interested I them and she read up onthem and found they are Mormons — surely a compliment to their religion.
