Over 200,000 fans have liked the video and a stream of commenters have praised the “sweet” gesture as they gush the girl will “never forget” being taught by the star.
Posting to his over 4 million followers, Lewis began the video by explaining that he wanted to play his new song on the piano but there was already someone using it.
He chose to introduce himself to the young girl and asked her to play the melody, while telling his TikTok fans that she is “way better” than he is at playing piano.
“How are you doing? Very good stuff! You are a very good piano player. Talented,” Lewis said.
The heartwarming TikTok clip cut to show Lewis sat at the piano demonstrating the keys to the girl as she stood memorising.
He sang: “I bring her coffee in the morning, she brings me inner peace. I take her out to fancy restaurants, she takes the sadness out of me.”
The girl is then seen attempting to play the song herself as he sang the same line of the song in the background.
She was all smiles, as Lewis said: “Love it, smashed it, unreal.”
