Meet Hugo – The Dog Who Loves To Play Piano

Hi! My name's Hugo. I'm an 11½ year old labradoodle, and I've always loved piano!

I love everything about the piano – the sound it makes (especially when my Dad plays), and I love learning to play piano... that's THE BEST!

My Story

Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah... I'm a 5th generation Australian labradoodle. I'm 11½ years old which makes me 80 in human years (ancient I know)!

But I haven't always been this old.

 This is me the day my Dad picked me up when I was just 8 weeks old.

 As well as piano, I enjoy lots of other stuff...

But my favorite thing of all is the piano!!!

Hugo the dog practicing piano

This is me when my Dad first started teaching me how to play the note Middle C on the piano.

Eventually, when I could play Middle C, he started me on very simple timing exercises (simple for humans but really hard for dogs). 

And for the last several months, I've been learning my first song called 'Jack In The Box' – at first without any backing track, and then – which was Soooooo much fun – with the backing track!!!

If you haven't already seen it, check out my amazing video above to see how far I've come!

And finally, this is me recovering after practice!!!

A well earned rest I'd say! 



The Takeaway From My Story...

If I can learn to play piano, anyone can!

It doesn't matter if you're ancient like me (80 in human years) or as young as 7 human years old... If you're smart enough to come when called, you'll do just fine.

So if, like me, you have a dream to learn to play piano, I have a recommendation for you... try Musiah – the world's best piano learning app.

(Yeah, I know, it's my Dad's invention, so you could say I'm a bit biased... but it worked for me!)

Honestly, with Musiah, it's super easy to learn because Musiah is the world's only A.I. piano teacher! So the app speaks to you and guides you every step of the way – just like a live teacher.
