Music? Why music, you say?

Well, friends, simply because there's been quite enough of those doleful sounds, as the great Ludwig van Beethoven might say, of infections and deaths from the coronavirus that is ravaging societies around the world.

What we need now, as the German composer declared in the Ode To Joy, that rousing finale to his well-loved Ninth Symphony, is some more "cheerful songs, full of joy".

Sounds of the triumph of the universal brotherhood of man, and music that speaks of the joys of life, friendship and togetherness, all so sorely missed in these days of lockdowns and isolation.

I finally released my 89 piece mega-work called "Scenes of Singapore". I completed this last year but was not on time for National Day, so I have kept it in stasis until 2020. For those who are interested, the entire collection comes complete with sheet music for viewing and playing directly from the video. The video clocks in at 2 hours 53 minutes and it was quite a challenge creating it.

I finally released my 89 piece mega-work called "Scenes of Singapore". I completed this last year but was not on time for National Day, so I have kept it in stasis until 2020. For those who are interested, the entire collection comes complete with sheet music for viewing and playing directly from the video. The video clocks in at 2 hours 53 minutes and it was quite a challenge creating it.

Each piece is tied to a constituency of Singapore (based on the 2015 Election). The title of each piece starts with the first letter of the particular constituency. See the video below. I sincerely hope you love the entire collection as much as I enjoyed composing it. Please like, subscribe, and share. Thank you.

23-year-old professional pianist Tiffany Poon takes us through her weekly routine leading up to her concert to raise money for Doctors Without Borders. Between vlogging on her YouTube channel, cutting her own bangs and getting a good night sleep, watch and see how this piano prodigy balances it all.

I've learnt this the hard way that discipline is truly the only key to success. And here I'm of the opinion that Hannon induces that discipline factor in the piano learning. But let's be practical, discipline is most definitely boring, so I'd limit these exercises to maybe 15 minutes a day, or whatever is comfortable relative to each individual, but never NEVER oppose it totally.

A beautiful slow-tempo indie pop piano ballad which talks about a breakup, where the lover is implored to make a statement that could potentially reverse plans, with the singers expressing humility, sadness and regret.

The ultimate test how well you know the music is if you would be able to play it mentally away from the piano. You may need to move your fingers in order to get through the piece at first. It is a advisable to have the score next to you so you can refer to it when you are unclear about what is written. Practice this way until you can play through the entire piece away from the piano hearing all the parts and imagining all the finger and hand movements.

Avett Ray Maness is a 6-year-old piano prodigy from Dayton, Ohio, who not only taught himself to play piano by ear – but he's also blind.
"The moment he could pull himself to reach the piano, he was playing the melody to 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,'" Avett Ray's mom, Sara Moore, told CBS News. That was when he was just 11 months old. Avett Ray has since gotten a piano teacher, who helps him learn new techniques and classical tunes.

Movie: The Pianist based on true story.
Amazing to hear someone recollect an event in history so prominent and so tragic. Can't even begin to imagine the suffering so many people must have endured during that time, particularly those not as lucky as him. Hope the Captain is resting in peace, he 100% deserves it. Also, for the record,
The Pianist deserved every single award it won, and more, especially Adrian Brody's haunting performance. Brilliant film!
