    I never thought I would see Harry Potter and young Severus Snape jamming. But they are absolutely amazing.

  2. John Nihen says:

    Wow! These kids can JAM! A song far removed from their generation done beautifully, right down to the Guitar Solo!

    1. Chelsi says:

      Probably by virtue of the fact that they are teenagers and they are doing this, and they appear to love it. Nerdy is no longer an insult.

    2. Ryan in Seattle says:

      Nerdy because they are laughing at an inside joke about music. But it’s cool because we took nerd back a while ago, and it’s an affectation now. Also, the Asian kid ‘is’ the one wearing glasses. :P

    Awww! I LOVED that! I love how passionate they are about playing the violin and cello, and how amazing it sounded! :)

  4. Judy Peterson says:

    These guys need to get on America’s Got Talent! They’d be contenders for the million dollars and for an opportunity to play Vegas.

    1. Mark says:

      Someone wanted proof they are nerdy? One of them is in a band called “String Theory”. Nuff said :)

  5. Phoebe says:

    I love some of the things music students do when they are supposed to be practicing! (as a former music student myself.) Watch out, Turtle Island Quartet, Punch Brothers, etc!

  6. studentjohn36 says:

    In any academic institution I ever tried to make music in, this sort of thing would have been discouraged, if not cause for serious reprimand.

  7. john says:

    Dont know why the title has to label them nerdy just cuz they don’t wear there pants at there knees or have tattoos and piercings people must label them these kids are amazingly talented and they aren’t tryin to be another person they are original and I respect that I believe your aloud to have your own style
