The Piano Guys …….


Official Website:

The Piano Guys are an American musical group consisting of Jon Schmidt, Steven Sharp Nelson, Tel Stewart, Paul Anderson and Al van der Beek. They gained notoriety through YouTube, where they posted piano and cello renditions of popular songs and classical music.

Schmidt and Nelson’s music is accompanied by professional-quality videos shot and edited by Paul Anderson and Tel Stewart. In December 2011, they released their first album, titled Hits Volume 1.

Their second album, The Piano Guys, reached number one on the Billboard New Age Albums and Classical Albums charts in 2012.


Paul Anderson owned a piano shop in St. George, Utah. He met musician Jon Schmidt as the latter walked in to ask if he could practice there for an upcoming concert.[2] Months later, Paul Anderson and Tel Stewart (then just for fun) started making videos together of Jon Schmidt.

It was not too long after that they did their first collaboration with Jon Schmidt, Steven Sharp Nelson, and Al Van Der Beek as the studio and music technician. After the five of them started collaborating the group really started to take off, producing a music video each week and posting it to YouTube.

The team also includes Tel Stewart (videography and editing) and Al van der Beek (production and recording).
