Thought that the CNY would be a good time to do some reading and wanted to read this, but in the end spent my time practicing the piano and eating...By the way, this is a really good book on orchestration and I'm proud that it's written by a local. Unlike other books on orchestration that I've read, this does not make me feel like I'm studying for an exam, but that I'm really learning music. Highly recommended for those doing grade 8 theory and beyond and for those interested in orchestration! ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘

Red packets for my students for Chinese new year. I also call this "Exam luck". Hopefully my students will do well for their practical exam at the end of this month ๐Ÿ˜„

Taught at the exam studio yesterday. It was a nice room to take the exam in,  but the piano (Yamaha U1J) was not as good as I expected (even though it had good reviews from the previous examiner) and booking fee was overpriced - SGD $60/hr for weekdays and up to $90/hr for weekends. And it took me more than 1hr by public transport to get there...now I kinda regret not booking my student's exam at my friend's music school..haha..

Finally got more time to practice during the CNY...here's today's practice. I got inspired to learn this after hearing an 11 year old play at a masterclass. Had always thought that this piece is beyond my ability to learn, and I actually tried learning it myself about 8 -10 years ago and gave up before completing the first page. Now that my sight reading, technique and practice habits have improved, I find this much easier to learn, but still I started off slowly at 60 quaver beats and only increased the speed 2 beats at a time. It was really hard work, but I'm glad that I managed to learn this, though there is still much room for improvement โ˜บ

Did a few portrait shots recently using my phone, and this is one of them. Do I look more like a professional pianist now? Haha.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Today's masterclass by Elena Nesterenko. This is the first time I've heard an 11 year old play La Campanella and Grande Polonaise live,  though the playing still have much room for improvement. Have learnt a lot from today's masterclass, but it was a pity that there wasn't enough time for this performer to play Kapustin and I had to leave early as she started the masterclass late.

Got a cut on my finger,  but there's no excuse for not practicing. So here's another nocturne!
