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!

Thank you so much! I’ll do my best!

And there will be a video too, hopefully!
