Keep those Dreams

I'm amazed how a 4 minute long video clip can move you to tears. One of my pupils showed me this clip before a lesson and I had trouble recuperating myself after watching it! It is so moving on so many levels. Just makes you realize we shouldn't give up on our dreams. Enjoy!

I Dreamed A Dream-Susan Boyle

A Taste of Heaven

Holy%20Trinity%20Church_resize.jpgIt's now a week since coming back from my trip to England. It had been a while since I had done a full recital so the past few months have been really tough both physically and mentally.

I won't go into detail on how the concert went or how I felt it went,as I think that experience can and should only be shared by those who were there on the night. (I'm always a bit suspicious when musicians tell you how well a concert went... How the musican felt and how the audience felt are usually two totally different things.)

HT%20Piano_resize.jpgI have to say though that my whole experience in Hereford has been a really amazing one. This is the third concert I've done here and I am overwhelmed by the support and kindness that I have felt by all those involved in making these concerts possible and also by those whom traveled so far to come and hear me.

Usually there is an emptiness which follows big concerts,but this time I was immediately filled with joy and happiness. I cannot believe how lucky I am and am mystified by why I deserve having such beautiful warm-hearted people around me.

I don't know how much I was able to "give" through my music but I definitely came home with my heart overflowing of love. I feel like I've been to Heaven.

Now - back to the real world!
