[:en]Appreciation

Every note we play, every song we learnt.
Every lesson we take, every teacher/student we met.
Every concert we performed, every exam we took.
Every moment we have at the piano.

Every one of them is precious.

Appreciate the chance we have with music. It seems easy for us to come by -like everyone is playing an instrument in Hong Kong –
But it’s not guaranteed. It seems like it because our parents have strived their best to work and provide for us the best education, and in their mind music is one of the subjects. Many parents never had the chance to take any piano/instrumental lessons, yet they believe it’s a great thing for us to learn.

We need to be thankful for the opportunity and deeply and fully appreciate and utilize it. And to deeply and fully appreciate it means to work hard at it, to do the best to get the best result (learning and performing rather than marks and grades- when you have the first you automatically have the second).

For those who take the initiative to take piano lessons and even pay for themselves, congratulation! You have given yourself such a beautiful gift for your life ahead to enjoy and explore for many many years to come. It’s an interactive tool. You give more, you receive more. You fail more, you gain more.

I am thankful to have this platform to share with you about piano and life, may peace and joy be with you all.

[:zh]學習欣賞,學習珍惜

每一個音,每首歌,
每一個課堂,每一個你遇過的老師/學生,
每一個表演,每一個考試,
每一個在鋼琴前面的時光。
每一個都是這麼的珍貴。

對我們香港人來說,彈琴、學樂器好像是必然的事:我們大部分人沒有想過要去學,只是父母「逼」我們的。逼我們上課、逼我們練習,真是很「痛苦」喎!

其實,我們要欣賞和珍惜、感激父母提供給我們的機會,珍惜好的老師用心去教學,教導我們怎樣去彈奏、怎樣去瞭解和欣賞音樂,怎樣去付出心機、努力和時間去琢磨自己的琴藝,學習懂得去為做好一件事去付出、去堅持,在感到最沮喪、最低落的時候,怎樣爬起身、繼續向前行,怎樣在挫敗中學習而得到更好的成果。
這個就是學習彈琴最大的得益了。

如果你是自己去付出時間、金錢,讓自己有這個機會去學習音樂、彈奏鋼琴的話,恭喜你,你送給了自己一件最大的禮物,為現在將來的人生道路上灑下一個美麗的曙光。將來的風景會越來越吸引,令你讚嘆自豪、獲益良多,令你感受更深,明白到生命還是美好的,很多東西得來不易,要好好珍惜。

我常常說學習彈琴是一個工具,真正學習到的怎樣從中去了解音樂、欣賞生命。當你付出更多,就會收穫更多。有時是挫折,有時是喜悅,有時是沮喪,有時是從心裏綻放出來的興奮和快樂。這種感受是最內心、最個人、最真摯的,亦沒有任何東西可以替代、沒有其他人可以帶給你的。

我很感激我有這個平台和你們一直分享音樂、分享生命。

就讓我們珍惜每一次彈琴的機會吧。

[:en]The Four Qualities of a Great Mentor (Part II)[:]

[:en]Music is inseparable from our daily lives, even when what we learn is classical music. One can understand how one piano technique is improved by observing own action and actions of others on the street. One can get more ideas of musical expression by gaining inspiration from a movie or a piece of music of another genre than classical one.

The possibility is endless, and only the sky is the limit.[:]

[:zh]鋼琴學習的進程和空間[:]

[:zh]

很多時候覺得自己或自己的小孩子在鋼琴彈奏上進步不夠多、不過快、不夠好。
 
首先應該問一問自己,究竟自己或小孩子有沒有放足夠的時間和心機去練習呢?請不要將學琴年資與進度等同,因為很多人說自己或小孩子有「五年學琴經驗」或是有「五級資歷」,但是實際上五年當中究竟真正放了多少時間去練習和上課呢?那就要捫心自問了。
 
第二時,究竟是否自己太心急想要自己或小朋友在短時間進步太快太多呢?
 
彈琴和學音樂畢竟是需要時間去學習、醞釀、思考、感受、磨練、聆聽、發揮的。有時可能覺得其他人 (的小朋友) 進度比較快而開始懷疑自己或小朋友是否太慢呢?其實很多時候大家一定要有更多的耐心去等待進度出現,而同一時間放更多的心機和時間去令進步發生。真正的進度是一隻在醞釀中的就像種子萌芽一樣,它的成長一開始有大部份都是在泥土裏面,你看不見它的生長,但是你一定要不停的灌溉施肥,小心地去處理它的生長、用心打理,最終當它生長出來是定會成為美麗的幼苗的。而究竟之後你是否想一直去灌溉打理,令它生長更大更高更茂盛的話,那就是你的決定了。
 
成長中的幼苗會變成美麗的花朵嗎?
 
請給予自己和小孩子多一點時間、多一點空間。
