Carry On Piano-ing....

When she was four years old, I sent herJMC for two years... after that, she took in-house lessons for less than a year. Then she gave up at the age of seven, ever since then, the piano almost like a "white elephant", good for putting pictures and collecting dust....

Now ten years later, she dug up some old piano books.... Many thanks to some Korean series, she picked up the interest again.... she began "tang tang tang" some Korean songs... she will play the same song over and over again and...... over agaaainnn...... but I never get "muak"... as yet... lol..

Carry on playing, Girl... I love listening to them even though you play them numerous times.... to them... you are no pro... but to me, you are one...


  1. *sigh* I am musically illiterate... cannot read any notes. If only I can...the only thing I can play on the piano is Richard Clayderman's Ballad Pour Adeline...and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. =.=

  2. whoa she know how to play it! can ask foong to play with her one day! :D

  3. Oh, just like our Piano, the mice feasted on the chords that I had to have it repaired. I hope the kids will resume lessons this summer.

  4. I have a few kids at home waiting for adoption --- 2 organs, 1 guitar, 1 keyboard, 1 violin and 1 Yamaha flute.

  5. your 'return of investment' (ROI) is positive... she's playing music for you to relax.

  6. cleff: at least u know 2 songs! i NIL!

    carol: amateur and a profesional? hahaa..

    marie: cannot force on them.. they will play when they feel like it..

    pam: which do u play? all? geng!

    chris: i love listening to the notes.. eventhough she played over and over again.. hahaha..

  7. It's a good news for both of you!;D

  8. well, my organ for my kids are sitting quietly upstairs!

  9. Hey,

    Similarly, I stopped playing my organ since age 15 till now, don't think I know how to play back 15 years later.

  15. Me too! Have an electronic piano at home - bought it as Melissa asked for it. She can play...and everytime, whatever songs she played I would sing along. you've made me miss her! Tsk! Tsk!
