When we watched pianist and composer Sonya Belousova create impromptu arrangements of Nintendo theme songs, we were amazed by her musical abilities. Now Belousova and her Player Piano partner, producer, and director Tom Grey have decided to tackle Disney theme songs, further proving Belousova has some unbelievable talent.

The YouTube channel team gives pop culture songs and soundtrack themes a classical twist in their videos. One of the ways they do this is through “On the Spot” videos where Belousova listens to a song and then moments later plays an original version of the tune. Like the Nintendo video, these “On the Spot” Disney themes were suggested by one of their Indiegogo campaign supporters.

From “When You Wish Upon A Star” to “Under The Sea,” Belousova plays six songs and a special bonus track from Frozen. If that’s not enough to make you want to watch, Grey is replaced by a puppet in the video—because why not?

Listen to Belousova’s arrangements of some Disney favorites and watch her work on the spot in the video.
