I love you.

 

我的父母送了我一份世上最珍貴的禮物:音樂。

我亦感恩,感謝曾經教導過我的所有老師,感謝他們無私的分享,教授。

學習音樂,令生命豐盛,在追求學習音樂的完美演繹過程中,人們學會堅持,學會細心。而當自己登上演奏舞台時,更能夠學習面對群眾壓力的方法,音樂滋潤心靈,踢走陰霾。音樂擴闊眼界,擴大社交圈子,聯繫社群。音樂應該是生活的一部份,而不是升學或加學分的工具。眼見現時音樂被視為工具,越來越多小朋友,由於急功近利心態,老師家長過份摧谷,拔苗助長,學生未能樂在其中,所有的音樂製造過程,都變成枯燥乏味。很是可惜!

學習態度方面:要真正掌握一首歌曲,所謂學”好”的其中一個指標,便是能夠背譜,在舞台上,面對群眾時,也能隨心所欲地演奏。所以唐老師每兩年會舉辦學生演奏會之餘,亦會不定期在商場或其它場合掙取演出機會。

 

Welcome to my Blog.  This is a blog mainly for sharing my music, my music teaching life, my students and my philosophy. Hopefully you will share some common thoughts in it.

生活太忙,需要處理的事情太多,很多事情過目即忘。用網頁,把曾做過的表演,教學的進度,練習的進度等一一記下,除了希望提醒自己要不段學習和進步外,亦更清楚知道學生的進度,更易因材施教,教學相長。

在[Recording]內,亦上載了小提琴作品的伴奏片段,方便練習時用。

希望當聆聽自己和學生的錄音時,繞樑三日,百聽不厭。

Share with you, one of my performances: 與你分享,其中表演片段:

Miss Ellen has been teaching since 1997 till now. She has worked as a news journalist after her bachelor degree in Communications. BA (Hons) Communications and Media Studies. After working as news reporter, TV show host and others… She has decided to devote herself fully into the music field.  She came to a thought a day that life is so short, if ones cannot indulge in a job or career that she enjoy most, that would be pity.

Ellen loves music very much. Jamming with friends and accompanying other soloist has been her most favorable interest.

Jamming with Debra Wong on “Secret Garden” instantly.

Although Ellen was working in a different field other than music, she never stopped learning. She obtained her piano performance certificate ATCL (performance level 1 certificate) with distinction during the course and also started another new instrument: violin. Life was not easy handling both day time job, teaching in the evening and practicing with the dumper pedal on during midnight or early morning.

After some years later devoting herself fully into music, she worked on the next level, the LTCL, (performance level 2 certificate) and picked up second instrument : Violin. (now proceeding to learning diploma level after grade 8). She also pushed herself to further study in the field of music, the Master of Arts in Music (major: conducting) in HKBU in 2012.
