Who am I?
My name is Jacob Ladegaard. The pronunciation difficulty of my last name led me to choose Jacob’s Piano as my artist name. I’m born in April 1991 which makes me 26 years old today.
I am located in Copenhagen, Denmark and I’m currently taking my masters degree in economics at the University of Copenhagen. Beside my studies I, of course, use a lot time as Jacob’s Piano.
How do I look?
As you may notice my face doesn’t appear anywhere. This may seem as a conscious choice but is rather a result of coincidence (and not because I’m too ugly). I have chosen what I believe is the best angle to shoot my videos and it happens to be an angle showing only my hands. When/If I get a satisfying photo of myself I will upload it to this post!

My musical history ♫
Where I grew up we had a little piano which I believe I played already when I was a few years old. The romantic story would be that I knew it was my call and played piano happily ever after — this is not the case 😉
When I was around 9 my mother signed me up for piano lessons with an old lady. It was boring… I believe I had the lessons for no more than 2 or 3 years. The rest of my childhood was pianoless until I, at the age of 15, realized how much I missed it. I started taking lessons but only for 6 months since I was going away to boarding school.
Last year I took lessons once again because of the success of my channel. Unfortunately I don’t have time for lessons at the moment.
So to sum up… I’ve had around 4 years of lessons in total but I have played the piano a lot since I was child — most of what I’m capable of is definitely self-taught. But who knows… one day this project may make it possible for me to take a college degree in music!
