Certain keys, tonalities, and melodic formulas fortify the human character: others may weaken it. Musical training is a more potent instrument than any other, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the secret places of the soul.

~ Plato, The Republic

Its comforting to know that the musical generation gap is not a new phenomenon.

oh Gosh, this might not sound like an encouragement but I'm pretty sure that's what got me into music (keyboard in particular).

When I was about the age of 4, I learned accordion in kindergarden. Every night, mom would sit with me on my bed and practice it until everything's perfect, and usually that'll be 10 at night. But the work payed off, I'm always the only one who can memorize the music, and I started to like it very much, because I got the "treat" ! Please don't think I had enjoyed it since the beginning, I have no music talent at all.

Mom was very hard on me. Now, I would do anything but quitting.
Don't ever give up piano, because you will like it someday
