About / Jacob's Piano
My name is Jacob Ladegaard, and I am an independent composer and pianist from Copenhagen, Denmark. The name “Jacob’s Piano” originates from my YouTube channel and has now become my primary artist name for all my released works.
In addition to my passion for music, I have also dedicated myself to the realm of education and online entrepreneurship. I am proud to have amassed over 1,400,000 subscribers on YouTube, 170,000 followers on Instagram, and have garnered more than 500,000 monthly listeners on Spotify.
At present, my life revolves around creating and recording music, both original compositions and covers, as well as producing content for social media. Furthermore, I am eager to share my knowledge and expertise through online courses available on this website.

Are you looking for new music to play?
My philosophy of music is that less is more. I believe the most simple and minimalistic music is the most beautiful. Therefore, I write simple music myself focusing on strong and beautiful melodies. Thus, my music is suitable to play for both beginners and more experienced pianists. Check out some of my most popular original pieces below.

YouTube / The Story
While I’m currently active across various platforms, it’s no secret that Jacob’s Piano originated as a YouTube project, and YouTube remains my most important platform.
The journey began back in 2013 as a side project, where I sporadically uploaded cover songs. Though I didn’t anticipate turning my music and content into a sustainable livelihood, I held onto that hope and dedicated effort towards it.
Then came 2016, a transformative year marked by two videos: 4 Beautiful Soundtracks and Mariage d’Amour. These videos became catalysts, going viral and reshaping everything. They’ve consistently held the top spot in terms of monthly views, continuing to do so even today.
