Recently my piano teacher informed me that she may ask me and my daughter to play something during their school concert.
“OMG! Pengsan. Pengsan.” I told her.Â “No, not pengsan at all”Â she replied. After she told me that, I was so nervous, I played lousily during my lesson just thinking about it. Hahaha.
I had always dreamed of playing the piano and finally had a chance to learn a little over a year ago. My daughter has been learning for about a month.
Â I think this will be good exposure for my girl. And so, though I’m shivering right to my very bones, especially the finger bones, I shall do it if given the chance. All for the sake of my girl. Oh, the things we parents do for our little ones.
I shall have to practise and practise and annoy the neighbours and practise and practise some more till I can play with my eyes closed, otherwise, I shall be so nervous, my fingers will freeze and tangle up!
The only other time I’ve “performed” a musical instrument was playing the organ in a shopping mall when I was young. Oh yes, and there was this other time when I had to sing in front of some judges during a test at the end of my Singing Classes. Boy oh boy, how my voice shivered and shook made worse by the fact that my teacher had asked me to sing “On my Own” from “Les Miserables.”Â (Video below as sung by Lea Salonga so beautiful). I have always been in a school choir and I enjoy singing in a choir but singingÂ alone is a different ball game altogether. Playing the piano with my girl playing the accompaniment is just as scary but I shall have to put up a brave front for my girl. Ooooh shiver shiver.
