He still might only be a fresh faced youngster himself, but [piano](http://www.gear4music.com/Keyboard-Piano.html) phenomenon Yundi Li sees himself as a role model to millions of aspiring musicians in China. Li, who at 28 has had a career many would dream of, told AFP there are some 50 million Chinese people studying the piano, adding it is a very musical country. He said: "My responsibility is to support young musicians. I want to be a role model for them and use my energy to help them grow." The piano player first caught the eye of the world in 2000, when aged just 18 he won the Frederic Chopin piano competition in Warsaw – the youngest person to ever do so. It was particularly moving for Li as Chopin is a favourite of his. "I have the chance to continue to represent Chopin's music for the younger generation, to have more people listen and understand his music, his thoughts, his heart," he told AFP. The Red Hot Chili Peppers recently revealed their hit album I'm With You was composed with the piano – the first time they had ever used the instrument in their music.
