A Profile of An Adult Student- Clive Ngai (Diploma Level)

[anti-rclick]一個成人學生的寫照 – Clive Ngai (文憑級)

Clive is easily any teacher’s favorite student: he is passionate about his playing, eager to play more pieces and try new things, practises diligently on his own, etc. He played flute during his secondary school years, and tried to learn playing some piano pieces all on his own. Then he came to me for lessons one summer less than two years ago when he was a fresh university graduate and started his new job.


One thing I admire him most is even though Clive has a full-time job, he is always prepared for lessons. I believe it is his self-motivation and his love for music that keeps him going. He never took any piano exam before, but tomorrow he will take his first: the ATCL recital exam. I wish him good luck here, and happy playing!


Here are a couple videos from Clive’s lesson:

First is Mozart’s Sonata in Bb Major, K.333, third movement:
