I think my Mami is very "Kiasu". Recently my Electone Teacher mentioned to Mami that I do not want to read my music notes. Because my hearing is good, I tend to learn the song through hearing when my Electone Teacher plays the song. Once he has played, I will try to figure out the song.
Mami made two conclusions. It is either I am lazy to read the music notes, or I do not know how to read the notes. Well, I think Mami's conclusions are not really correct. I know how to read notes, but I am slow in reading them. I find it difficult to play a new song by looking at the notes for the first time. I would also loose track of where I am on the music scores.
So, Mami decided to buy me some Theory Books from Yamaha to teach me. She bought the Theory Books from Book 2 to Book 4. Book 1 was completed long long time ago. Everyday I would need to do 2 pages in the Theory Book. Mami hopes that it would give me the confidence in reading notes on the music scores.
Well, I don't quite like to do Theory, but the Book 2 isn't that difficult for a start. I think my Mami is becoming a little too "Kiasu"..... but I know she wants me to do my best in music. She has constantly reminded me that God has blessed Shaun Shaun and I with musical talent. Do the best with what God has given me so that I can serve God with it. She said that if I do not use my talent, it is easy for me to loose it. "What God gives, He can also take away".
