Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz’s son Egypt may be following in their musical footsteps. In two new Instagram videos, the 4-year-old shows he’s already a pro on the piano, playing the “Charlie Brown” theme song. Watch below!

Beatz posted the first clip on Friday, showing the pajama-clad little boy sitting on his knees on a piano bench in their home. “#Focused,” the music producer captioned the clip. He followed up with “#Focused pt2” on Saturday, which Keys reposted on her own Instagram. “He LOVES this!!” wrote the proud mama. “Every morning waking the whole house up!!! So cute!!! Somebody’s got the bug!!”

Keys and Beatz have 16 Grammy Awards between them, and collaborated together on his 2011 track “International Party.” They’ve clearly passed their love of music onto their Egypt, and the stars occasionally use Instagram to document their time with him. Sharing a photo from Egypt’s fourth birthday last October, Keys wrote, “Can’t believe it’s been 4 years!! Happy birthday to our incredible son! Who has no shortage of personality! ;-) We’re so proud of you! We’ll do ANYTHING for you! You’ve changed everything for the better! Blessings to you forever little one! #familyfirst!!!”

And, as Gossip Cop recently reported, their family recently expanded. On December 27, Keys and Beatz welcomed their second son together, Genesis, making Egypt (who has older half-siblings from his dad’s prior relationships) a big brother. Maybe he’ll teach Genesis the piano. Check out the videos below!
