Like you’ve read in my About page, you know that I play the piano. It’s just for fun!
When I was 3 years old I made my own song on “the piano”. Actually I didn’t play on a real piano, but on a pillow which looked like a small brown piano (I thought like that when I was 3). I got inspired of playing the piano when I watched someone on tv playing that instrument. His fingers were so fast and it looked like real fun for me so I started to dream of a real piano. My parents made a “music video” of my short song “Ada anak kecil” (that’s in the indonesian language and means “There’s a little child” ). Take a look at it (Actually I don’t know what I sang except of the refrain. I think these words aren’t real :)):
And when I was 6 years old my parents asked me, if I want to learn an instrument. Of course I said “yes”, but actually at this time I didn’t know which instrument I should learn. I knew that I wanted to play the piano, but at this time it felt like, it would be my only chance to learn an instrument (I don’t know why). There were many other instruments like flute, violin, drums, guitar. At first I said flute, later violin… It was so hard for me to choose one instrument. But I knew that piano was something that I wanted to learn so at last I said “piano”. From that day on I learn the piano. It makes lots of fun, but I have to learn many times, of course until I could play perfectly! Learning is the most important thing, if you want to become a master!
And… do you know what? One day dad bought me a flute and an exercise book for beginners with the basics and some music sheets. Now I learn a little bit flute, too!
