How are you? I wonder how you’ve been doing. When’s the last time you played your piano? When’s the last time you shared music with others?
I think about you often. I do.
I remember how our first piano lessons together, and how that evolved to become a long-term relationship as teacher and students, as well as friends.
I remember we had the first breakthrough in one of our lessons, it was amazing.
I remember how I felt so emotional and touched when I heard you play in some occasions, thinking I was really blessed to have all these lovely students who wanted to share music with me for so many years.
I remember how I told you to have a haircut because your hair was frankly, messy (you see, your teacher, aka moi, also have the same problem from time to time when life gets hectic, still do).
I remember we had that talk, and I really hoped it resonated with you and helped you through.
I remember we had all those performance classes, masterclasses, concerts, all the rehearsals and performances – some frustrating moments, but always so many more good ones.
I remember we would go to concerts together, and discussed about the concert afterwards with a drink each in our hands.
We also had lunch, dinner, barbecue and all sorts of gathering. There were never short of laughters.
We had a lot of music gatherings and parties at my place.. it was a lot of fun. I love having parties and you all come over.
I remember I cared. And I still do.
Frankly, I really miss all of you.
I hope you are good, and still play the piano.
Have a happy Chinese New Year,
