- Feel sad that some people think that everyone should have same taste in music and play everything exactly as it was written

- And actually the manner of not clapping during a performance was developed in modern times. back in the days concerts were a lot more casual people talked and clapped whenever they wanted to and there was a lot of moving around.

I failed to pass my Grade 8 piano examination despite two attempts. By the time I called it quits, playing the piano had turned into a chore. There were more exciting activities for a teenager, like video games and football.

I am, thus, hesitant to inflict such a fate on my children. Not to mention the high cost of paying for lessons and buying a piano.

When Lang Lang was nine, his father told him to kill himself. Four years before, his father had decided that his only son should become the No 1 classical pianist in China. He gave up his job as a policeman and took his son to live in Beijing, leaving Lang Lang’s mother behind, planning to get the child into the prestigious Central Conservatory of Music.

However, his teacher in Beijing, nicknamed Professor Angry by Lang Lang, had other ideas. “Professor Angry didn’t like me and she always gave me a hard time,” he remembers. “One afternoon she said that I had no talent, that I shouldn’t play the piano and I should go home. She basically fired me before I could even get into the conservatory!”
