Me playing on an extremely out of tune piano at Petite France, South Korea about a month ago... I think it takes some skill to play on such a piano as you have to be not mindful of the notes that "sounded wrong" even if you're playing the correct notes or else it'll affect your concentration and fluency. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Chose this piece because it sounded creepy enough and suited this piano well.. ๐Ÿ˜‚

#throwback to last month when I taught at the exam studio to prepare my students for exam. They had a really nice piano - a Yamaha YUS5. This reminds me of the first time I took my piano exam and it was also with an upright grand piano. I still remember that inside the studio, there was this poster that said "a carpenter never blames his tools" and I totally agree with this. As I grew up practicing on a low-grade piano, I never complained about the exam pianos that I've come across as they were always better than my own (I only complained about my own piano..haha) My friends who practiced on good quality pianos sometimes would complain about the exam piano, but after teaching for so many years, what I can say now is, no matter what piano you play on, your playing reflects now much practice you did and how prepared you are for the exam and the examiner can hear it. You reap what you sow. There will always be external factors that you will encounter on the actual exam day, but if you're well prepared, you will not be affected by it. If you want to blame these external factors, you will never improve.

I still remember during my secondary school days when I was studying in a mission school, my school teacher would occasionally hand me a hymn and ask me to play it on the spot so that the other students can sing along. Back then,  a lot of people have the misconception that if you learn and can play the piano, you will be able to play any score that is put in front of you. While that may be true for people who have very good sight-reading or who have been playing for years, that was not the case for me (who only have been learning for 3 years) and I struggled to 'decode' every note and chord. Fortunately, back then I had a good friend who also plays the piano and offered to help me sight read one of the clefs and play together as a duet. 
Now that my sight reading has improved a lot, I find it much easier to play these in short notice, and I will be playing these in my upcoming bsf session. 
On a side note, I find that my students who are very good at sight-reading are also the ones who learn the fastest. That's why I make it a point to go through sight-reading with my students every other week or every week for those who are weaker.

It's children's day today! These are the gifts that I've prepared for my students. I bought them during my recent trip to Korea. They are sold almost everywhere in Korea. Can you guess what is it? No prize for guessing correctly though. ๐Ÿ˜

Public piano near Dongdaemun Design Plaza. This piano has a nicer tone compared to the other public pianos I've played on in Korea.

Piano quartet spotted performing at Incheon airport terminal 2. Does anyone know what piece is this?

์ฐพ์•˜๋‹ค! Finally found the books I wanted to buy in Korea. I'm a big fan of pianoheart's arrangements and playing so I bought all 3 of his books!  Price here is almost 3 times cheaper than what is sold in Singapore. Also bought the Studio Ghibli book as a bonus. ๐Ÿ˜

1 more week to my student's concert! Decided to organize another concert after 3 years (last concert was in 2015) as I will most likely be too busy the next few years to organize another one again. ๐Ÿ˜

What's more interesting to me than the Kim-Trump summit in Singapore this week? Hearing Martha Agerich play live! Glad to be able to hear this legend play. Her performance was awesome. ๐Ÿ˜Š

A distinction for the first grade 8 student that I registered for the theory exam! Very well done! ๐Ÿ˜„
