On the Piano

When I was little, my mom enrolled me into a course at a local music school. I spent years of my life growing up playing the organ, but (stupidly) stopped sometime in high school because I hated having to spend my Saturdays taking lessons and practising. The whole experience instilled in me a deep love and appreciation for music though, and one night last week as I was listening to the incredibly talented Joe Hisaishi play the theme song of Spirited Away on the piano, I couldn’t help but felt a sense of longing. V took me to a music store over the weekend and just like that, I got myself a Yamaha P35 digital piano. My fingers are stiff and my sight-playing skill has deteriorated after years of unuse, but with a little bit of practice, I think I can find my zone again. Thanks for making me do it, Mom.
