The star has decided to take piano lessons
Channing Tatum – who insisted on learning new things as his New Year’s resolution – has taken on piano lessons but admits the learning curve has been “brutal.” He is now looking for a professional tutor as he wishes to go above and beyond an amateur level.
Meanwhile, he happily chose to “shame himself” by showing off his skills to fans.
He explained in a video recently posted on Instagram: “I’m going to shame myself into getting better by showing you, where I’m at. Two and a half weeks into learning how to play the piano. Bare with me, this is going to be brutal.”
An accompanying caption read: “Hahaha! Keeping my New Year’s resolution to “learn new things”. But teaching myself piano is brutal. Got to get some legit lessons soon.”
Despite not being at his best, fans praised his efforts on Beethoven’s Für Elise. One user cheered him on with the message, “That’s food for a beginner” while others shared similar opinions.
One user in particular branded the actor’s wife “lucky” by stating: “I think you did a wonderful job since your teaching yourself but it don’t hurt that your gorgeous self is playing it either lol your wife is a lucky woman.”
Channin – who has a young daughter – previously admitted he liked to practice things until “a point that is probably unhealthy.”
He added on the subject of singing and dancing in Hail Caesar: “I spent about three months preparing. It’s the most I’ve ever prepped for a six-minute section in a movie.
We went over Christmas and New Year’s [in 2014], so I had all that time to let it gestate. I let it sink into my bones over the holiday break.
When I’m nervous about something, I drill it to a point that is probably unhealthy, but as long as it works even halfway, I’m happy at the end of the torturous day.”
