I have been learning piano since 5 so it's been 14 years. Got my grade 7 in 2010 and didn't have the chance to proceed due to academic reasons which I really would like to continue now but is still stopped by different reasons. I really enjoy playing piano now although when I was small, I hated it because I didn't like practicing it and my mum forced me to. I feel relaxing when I play the music I like and this keeps my mind calm. I often missed the time when I was at home for holidays and I can play piano whenever I want.
