No more passwords for the piano archive!

When I started sharing my sheets, there were so many rules and passwords that it seemed like those are not the piano scores I’m sharing but the Philosopher’s Stone at the very least. The reason behind it all? I was genuinely afraid that somebody could steal my work.

I’m not afraid anymore. And this means that the sheets will now be available without any passwords.

You’ll find the link to the cloud drive folder on Sheet Music Information page. And that’s how it’s going to be from now on! The old archive on Tumblr will be deleted.

All I ask in return is to follow a couple of simple general rules! They are the same.

Enjoy the music

Took this as I was working on the sheet music for Kiss and Cry.
Sometimes when I look at the chords I’ve written several months later, I would go "but how do you even play that?".

楽しもう!

On the night before my Mozart performance, I texted my best friend saying how nervous I was. She told me to relax and just enjoy it. “If you enjoy it, the audience will as well.”

When I was on the stage with the orchestra, I remembered her words and then Yuzuru Hanyu’s “tanoshimou” (“let’s enjoy this” / “let’s have fun”). So that’s what I said to myself during the introduction to the first movement:

And you know, I truly enjoyed it, every single note.

The Orchestra

This Saturday I will be performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23.

Took this picture just before my first ever orchestra rehearsal.

I’ve been dreaming about performing with an orchestra ever since I was a schoolgirl but I never got a chance to do it. Until now.

Dreams come true. If you wish long enough.

Congrats! :)
I don’t know how to play the piano, and my knowledge about classical music is next to nothing. But I’ve been instantly amazed by your covers since I first watched them! :D Your talents are great! I’m happy for you! Go for your dreams! xD Good luck this Saturday, uhmm, break a leg? :3

Stay where you are!

And there will be a video too, hopefully!
