5 fun facts about the piano on La La Land

If you are a La La Land lover, you should know how amazing was Ryan Gosling playing the piano on La La Land! We all know he is an actor, but… is he a pianist too? When did he start playing the piano?

Do you want to know 5 fun facts about the piano on La la land?

We thought so!

First of all, how much did you love La la land? And more importantly: how cool was Ryan Gosling playing those piano solos?? Crazy!!

Our jaws dropped when watched him playing the piano in the movie with such a great style, and we are sorry to burst your bubble but all that glitters is not gold.

We know what you have been asking yourself… Is he really playing the piano? And the answer is yes, BUT we are going to tell you a few secrets and fun facts about the piano on La la land.

Ready?

  1. Ryan Gosling took three whole months of piano lessons so he could play the piano jazz style the movie required. Nobody double was used when filming the movie, but…
  2. All the piano solos that appear on the movie were recorded by pianist Randy Kerber before the shooting started!
  3. BUT what Gosling plays in the movie is not what we hear! How does that make sense? Let us tell you. He did learn how to play the piano but the original script was maybe too difficult for him? We don’t know for sure but he has proof!! Check it out.
  4. Ryan Gosling played the piano in one take on his first day of shooting! If he could do this in only three months without previous piano knowledge, we can all do it too!
  5. Even John Legend was jealous of Gosling’s talents, watching him learn how to play the piano from scratch.

But you know what? There’s no point in being jealous because you could play like Ryan Gosling! We love the movie and its music as much as you did so we transcribed the songs and turned them into piano sheets and piano tutorials. How great is that?

If you wanna play like the piano on La la land, you can check our Youtube channel or our sheet music catalog.

Give it a try and maybe this time it will be you who John Legend is jealous of! ?
