the violin, the piano and the cello

5 Oct

I was never really the gifted kid when it came to music. I liked music itself a lot (Madona, Michael Jackson and the sorts) but I generally disliked studying classical music. After 5 years of piano lessons I was able to play Ludwig van Beethoven‘s ‘Fuer Elise’ quite well. And this was the piece I played for my family every Christmas Eve in Germany at my grandparents house until they were officialy fed up.

After my piano teacher moved away, my parents thought that maybe piano was not the instrument for me and they tried another, the guitar. My gradfather (Opi) bought me a nice guitar and I started with private lessons. After a few months of nagging how I hated my guitar teacher I stopped with the lessons and my parents officially gave up with the whole ‘having to learn to play an instrument to perfection’ thing.

Now, some decades later, I have grown older and wiser and realise how important music is for a child while growing up. My sister, Alex, who was definitely the more gifted child when it came to music, enrolled her daughters into the music school from their 5th year onwards and now Emmanouela (11) plays the violin, Angelina (9) plays the piano & Elena (7) plays the cello. And they all play each instrument beautifully. It doesn’t really matter who is more gifted. What matters is music.
