3...2...1... Do, Re, Mi

Exactly three more days to 'the day'. As some of you may already know, I took up piano again after twenty years to be a living example to my two kids that no matter what age you are, you can still learn new things, albeit a little slower. :)

In three days, I will be having my Grade 5 practical exams.

Yes, 'the day'.

Grade 5 is the crucial stage for me. Twenty years ago, I had failed this grade twice. It was so discouraging, I quit. Yes, I do think I am courageous to take it on again. Especially at my age. I won't deny it. I am worried, to the core. With so many things happening to me this year (arrival of Ron Ron, etc), it has been challenging to find the time to practise.

But I've made the best of the situation. I've practised and practised till little Becky knows how to say 'I want to practise piano!', because I say that to her all the time. The clock is ticking. I think I'm ready. Bring it on!

Gawd... please let me pass! :D

  8. All the best to your upcoming piano exams - I think it is great that u decided to re-visit this again. Seriously i don't have the courage to pick it up again, I stopped at Grade 7 and the last time I played the piano was almost a year ago, and it was terrible, I can't even do a decent sight reading :( A while back I did consider if I should pick it up again, but I realized that my interest for learning music have died...bravo, on having the courage to do the again!
