Oliver and I are playing “Happiness”, a piece from Charlie Brown written by Vince Guaraldi.

Our piece is unique because it is a duet instead of a regular solo piece. Oliver and I have worked really hard for the last month and a half to try to perfect this piece as much as possible. We hope that whoever watches our video enjoys it.

Probably one of the more famous pictures from Charlie Brown! Great selection.


Working with a partner is always exciting! It adds a whole other dimension to performing.


Great job! There was really good collaboration here, you both worked together very well here. There was total unity between you both, good balance between all four hands, and really clear melody and accompaniment. Wonderful job, to both of you!

Hello Vincent and Oliver! Your performance makes the name of the piece truly live up to its name – I feel happy every time I hear you play it! I know that song from Charlie Brown/Peanuts very well, and used to sing it a lot. Now I have felt inspired to add a new verse to it:

Happiness is
Two people playing
On one piano
Musical friends!

Keep up the good work!

Hello Vincent and Oliver! Congratulations on your win. I love how the two of you listen so well to each other and keep a perfect tempo. Playing with another person is always a delight, even though there are extra challenges, different than playing solo. The two of you make a great team.
