❤️🎹 Here it is, the video of my first public performance playing the piano… As a gift to myself before turning 50 next March, I pursued my longtime dream of learning Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata”. . . I began last year, playing only by ear 👂🏼🎶 as I don’t know how to read musical notes & never had formal lessons before. . . This is far from perfect. Nonetheless, I am happy to have had the privilege of playing for a cozy crowd. Thanks to my teacher, Malou Parma, for encouraging me & believing in me 🙏🏼 . . You can view the full video on my IGtv 📺 . . Special thanks to @viv721 , @audreytanzubiri , @iammavzkie , & @iamfamel13, for shooting the videos.. and especially to @jazmine_ria for editing 🎹❤️ Love yah all! 💋 . . THANK YOU, Everyone!

🎶🎹 So here I am, 5 weeks after studying #FredericChopin's enchanting "Nocturne Op.9 No.2" ❤️ I have to say I'm surprising myself, I didn't think I'd even get this far without reading a note! (My daughter's piano teacher is very patient as she reads the music sheet and shows me the keys) Those of you who follow & comment on my progress have given me so much encouragement — THANK YOU 💋 I love playing the piano‼️❤️ #favoritething #piano #ouido #Nocturne #NocturneOp9No2 #classicalmusic #classicalpiano #musiclover #48andNotQuitting #pursueyourpassion #gratitude
