I have been meaning to cover the phenomenal work coming from Ohio-based music instructor Aaron O'Keefe for quite some time. The work of his students is beyond impressive, and as a musically-inclined father, makes me hopeful of what my own daughters will be able to one day accomplish. These exceptional (and very young) musicians are pulling off covers of some very famous (and some very difficult) songs, and their latest offering just arrived: "Love Song" by THE CURE, and "Du Hast" by RAMMSTEIN. Watch that video below, along with some other favorites of mine that you need to watch if you haven't already...

"46 and 2" by TOOL

"Live and Let Die" by PAUL McCARTNEY

"Cowboys from Hell" by PANTERA

"Pull Me Under" by DREAM THEATER

These are definitely some kids that rock. Check out Aaron O'Keefe's official site to learn more, and watch more of these killer videos.
