Shern & Khye's Piano Recital 2018

So both my kids had been learning piano since they were 4+ yo.
Shern is now 9 so he has been learning it for about 5 years now. And Khye for about 1+ years.

Just last weekend, their teacher held a Student Recital for all of his students. Nothing big but just among the parents. They had been practising for it for a few months.
I think it was a great opportunity for them to be able to perform in front of a crowd.
To be disciplined and to practise their pieces regularly. And to be able to perform in front of so many people.
And the crowd was not very small either. I think there was be about 60 to 80 ppl.

It was Khye's 2nd piano performance. His first performance was about a year ago.
Khye was in the first session this time. In fact, he was the first one to perform for that afternoon session.

This was Khye's performance - Pretty Bouquet.
He played good and was confident and I was very proud of him.

Shern had done a few performances as he has been with this teacher for about 5 years now.
His first ever performance was when he was 4+ years old and I also blogged about his love for playing the piano earlier this year.

He had been enjoying learning the song he chose, although towards the end I still needed to nag him to practise playing the song as the recital date got nearer. 

But in the end he played well, although there were some mistakes here and there. 
I am still very, very proud of him. Not only because he did well in the recital, but because he learnt a lot through it. The hours of practising throughout (though he practised only "minutes" every day! :P) and also seeing it with his own eyes how practising makes him play better.

This was Shern's performance on that evening - Souvenirs D'Enfance (Childhood Memories)

And above all, I want to thank their teacher for being one of the best piano teacher I've ever known. For being stern yet really nice. And for instilling their love in playing. 
Thank you very much.
