Music to your Soul

“Music is the language of the soul”, many knew that saying, and many forget that too. I’ve been totally in love with music since I’ve learned to speak. My mom would sing us lullabies when we were still young together with my two sisters. I was born in a family of musicians. My grandpa and grandma from my mother side were known musicians and art lover during their time. My mother is not only a Music teacher and composer; she’s also a prolific painter having staged her art display and exhibition at the age of 70. We’ll that just a little background so I can at least justify my love for music…hehehehe.

At the age of 7, I and my sisters were taught to play piano. Summer nights and special occasions would be something we would look forward to since we will be the stars of our family gatherings. My dad would let us (three kids) render songs, even dances to the delight of our family and friends. My sister (she’s the one who enrolled in a formal music class), would play musical pieces by Beethoven, Bach and many other well piano virtuosos. Me and my young sister would sing. We all would enjoy it very much. Now that we are all grown up and have our separate lives, we see to it that every time we gather together, we would play the old songs and just love every moment of it.
