Loc: Singapore
just a few weeks back, about 3-4 days before my 1st competition.

I played Haydn Sonata XVI/49 and Chopin Etude op.10 no.8 for a recital at church.
After church, everyone came up to me and told me what a fine performance it was. My aunt who knows my piano teacher said that she remembered watching my teacher perform this exact piece and that I did almost just as well and how it sounded excellent both technically and musically.
The day right after I played it for my teacher and played it perfectly except for 2 little mistakes but she praising me meant alot as she seldom will say anything like that unless my work is really wel done.

the other one, when I was 13, I played Fur Elise for some talent search at school. After I was done, there was a really loud, thundering applause and I could see a few teachers in tears at the back, I would say that people's respect increased for me after that as well. After moving here, I played it again for another start search held at Gateway theatre, the same thing happened and people were like just so, well they could'nt believe how well I could play when I wanted to.

Even just the other day, after my competition when I was placed 3rd, I felt a great sense of achievment and it meant alot to me as it was my 1st competition.

Started playing the piano at 6 when I accedentally listened to the Moonlight Sonata by Kempff. I was overwhelmed by it sound. Best time was when I finally played it myself. Fulfilment...
