Bryce Dudal, an 18-year-old pizza delivery driver, provided a family with more than a meal. After spotting a piano inside the foyer, he asked if he could take a look. Once inside, Paul Varchetti, one of the homeowners, asked if Dudal knew how to play. When he said that he did, he sat down and gave an impromptu performance.

Julie, Varchetti’s wife, said that her husband ordered pizza from Hungry Howie’s in Shelby Township, Michigan, for their children, according to a report by the Daily Mail.
When Dudal arrived with the pizza, he saw a baby grand piano inside the home, leading him to ask if he could take a closer look.
After being invited inside and confirming that he knew how to play, Dudal took a seat at the piano. He then played the third movement of Beethoven’s “Moonlight” sonata, stunning the homeowners.
Blown away by what he was witnessing, Varchetti took out his phone and began filming Dudal.
Later, Julie, who was not home at the time, shared the video on Facebook, and it quickly went viral.
“He was just beyond good,” said Julie during an interview.
Dudal, who states that he is mostly self-taught, memorized Beethoven’s “Moonlight” sonata when he was around six or seven years old.
“It was a long process,” he explained. “You have to sit there and think and try to put it on the piano, piece by piece.”
“I couldn’t read music back then,” Dudal added. “I would sit there and listen for hours and hours and try to figure it out.”
At age 12, Dudal’s parents found a music teacher who helped him learn to read music and perfect the sonata.
“It’s a flashy, fast, amazing piece,” said Dudal. “A lot of people sit down at the piano and place something slow and beautiful. But, when I play for someone, I like to go all out.”
