what does music mean to you?
don't get me wrong.. i am not relating ANYTHING to my dissertation or my design project..
it's just that i got this thinking today after my violin lesson..
to most music learners today, music, (no matter which instrument you play) mean passing the exams you are gonna take few months later..
music mean doing well in exams.. passing exams.. practicing and practicing exam pieces..
so? is music really tat simple? tat basic?
come to think of it, for the pass 10 years ++, all i do are only practicing for exams..
not playing for the sake of music!!!
i know this actually, but i don't know what can i do about it.. for as long as i can remember, every year, the only important thing will be to pass the exams..
but, y actually do i need to pass that exams??!
why? if all i can play is only the exams pieces, do i feel proud passing all those exams that thousands people around the world also pass? some with distinction?!
does passing matter the only thing that matter?
does not passing the exams mean i fail?
fail in terms of what? that music piece? or my dignity? or my ability? or my teacher? or the examiner??!
who? what? why?

Something funny

just back from piano lesson.. with something that tickle me.. haha

i was needed to visualize, or rather, express out what that piece of music from Chopin is all about.. my teacher wanted to describe a picture or describe a situation that fit that music..

and all i can think about is, peaceful then suddenly become very exciting..


and then she say choose one of the 4 season.. so i just say SPRING

then she say describe the activities..

then me say, erm.. a group of ppl.. doing something secrectly.. then suddenly being found out and being chased (coz the music suddenly become faster and faster)..

then u know what my teacher say?

" mei theng, u really very innocent.."


and she keep laughing..

she : u dun hav any troubles in ur mind hor?
me : uh.. i hav..
she : what?
me : homework..
she : =.=|| beside home work??! like.. love life?
me : nope
she: friendship?
me : nope
she : means everything is good? ntg to 'fan'?
me : yup

and she look at me.. and laugh again...

she : no wonder.. u really very 'tan sun' (lik wat they call ah wong =,=||)
me : "smile sheepishly"

then she proceed to tell me what she think of that piece..

i think of that piece of music as happy and exciting..
she think of it as depressed.. (she chose autumn btw..)

she : do u feel the piece lonely when u hear it?
me : nope

and she laugh again..

so she say.. that's y la.. u r still so protected.. nothing to depressed... that's y u feel the piece cheerful..

ok.. she say.. there's no right or wrong.. it's only what u feel..

i just feel like i am being given a music therapy.. and she is trying to understand my inner world..


so, that's the end of class.. i proceed to go..

she : mei theng.. u really dun hav anyone 'chui' ar?
me : huh? no la..
she : ya meh? cannot be ge wor.. y ar? izzit got but u dun wan oni..
