Playing musical instruments and singing is a relaxing hobby for the family. Whether it is piano, drum or guitar it will surely bring good mood with good music played by a member of the family. When I was a child, I dream of playing musical instruments like piano and guitar but I was not able to do it instead I sing. In my childhood days, we only have the small kid’s keyboard at home. I only played simple piece like “Happy Birthday song” and the music piece that was taught by my Music teacher with his key notes.
From my mother side clan, they have the great singing voice and I am so thankful that I inherited a part of it. One of my aunt can play a piano and can gracefully sing at the same time. I remember when I was ten, I joined an amateur singing contest in the province and my cousin played his classic guitar for me to practice. At the night of singing contest, I was so nervous because it was my first time to join in the contest with live band. Native Instruments were used by the musicians at the stage to play the song of each contestant. Guess what? I won the first prize with my chosen song “When you tell me that you love me” by the American soul singer Diana Ross. This is one of the unforgettable experience that I have in my childhood memories.
Now that I have a family, I wanted to encourage my child to be interested with musical instruments and love music. There are no dull moments with music. It helps to reduce stress in our body. Playing instruments and singing together will keep the family close bonding.
