Dear Students and Readers,
I hope you are having a good holiday.
Students, as said in my many posts, I am always here to support you. Now, I want to take this further and say, that WE are here for you. This WE includes not only me, but also your fellow studio mates, i.e. my other students. I want you all gather and support each other. We have had some gatherings once in a while but that’s not enough. I would like to see you work as a team, so that you know you are not alone in this, but in fact, that everyone has his/her own case and problems to attend to and would for certain benefit from other’s ideas, support and concern.
In the coming year, I hope to make this more solid, by expanding this on the site here, setting up a member’s forum. In fact, I encourage not only you my Students, but also you my Readers here who have been following me all along. Of course I also welcome newcomers to join our big family circle here. We are all in this to share our love and passion for music and piano. We can also discuss the problems we encounter in our practice and playing. We can share own ideas and experience in our ongoing music journey. And I very much look forward to seeing this happening here.
For the younger students, I also have a plan for you. I am having a new scoring system for the brand new year. Yes, we still have the sticker and gift redemption system, but I want to make the scoring scale clearer and more concrete in terms of the various aspects you have to achieve on different levels in your playing, practice, and lessons. It’s even better (and more fun) than now you’ll see!
As of other ongoing projects, I will finish off my piano method book and start to compose more music of different genres/styles.
Since I have been being very bold and setting up a non-profit organization recently in the hope of promoting music and helping the underprivileged to learn music/piano, I am still uncertain about what to do/how to make it happen in real. If anyone has experience or is interested in joining us for some meaningful work like this, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for following my posts and reading my thoughts all this time. I am grateful that so many of you have been supporting me in many ways all along. For that I am truly blessed.
I look forward, humbly and confidently, to a great year ahead.
With Love and in Faith,
