Music, My Elixir of Life

Playing music has always been my passion. There is nothing like the feeling of making music together with a group of friends, bring to life notes that composers put on paper, each of us interpreting the song as our own.

Music has shaped many parts of my life. I am sure those of you who play in bands will share my sentiments. I can’t imagine what kind of person I am without music being part of me.

But like all passions you have during younger days, most will eventually die out. I have not been playing since I graduated from NTU five years ago. Yes, I still play the flute occasionally, but I wanted something more… something that allows me to grow with and hone my skills in. Something that will give me the satisfaction to be able to play, and playing it well.

The piano, to me, is a “distant” instrument. I am more of a wind instrument kind of person. I remember vaguely learning Grade 1 piano when I was very young. Since then, I have not been learning it at all…

… except for the time I discovered how to play “My Heart Will Go On” and irritated the hell out of my friends, since that’s the only song I will (and can) play :P

I decided to take up piano, once again. Been looking at some courses, particular those recreational piano classes at Yamaha and Cristofori. Both look good to me, and I am not sure which one I should choose.

Opinions, anyone? And is it too late for a 28-soon-to-be-29-year-old guy like me to learn piano?

    @ Dickson – I think piano learning is going to a commitment because to see results, you’ll need to spend substantial amount of money and time on it.
