I hope you can appreciate the piece I chosen to play: following a bird by ezio bosso. If you can not exit from your home, you could go near your window, listen to this piece and try to follow a bird (an existing one or..Use the imagination). Love, Elena

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, I thought that playing a relaxing & delightful musical piece, Summer, by Joe Hisaishi, can hopefully relieve some of the stress during this time. I hope you enjoy the piece!

So this is a pair that goes together to signify the strength and intricacies found in both humanity and our surroundings.

                                                  day. Music is a great way to relax, and I believe more people need to discover its magical powers.

During this pandemic, I found that I had more time to practice the piano so I thought I would share some of the songs that I learned 🙂 Here is Etude no. 10 op. 9 by Chopin. I hope you like listening to them as much as I liked playing them!

                                                    I hope this music finds you well! I recently completed my 4th and final year of my undergraduate degree at Western University, London ON., in Medical Sciences during this COVID-19 pandemic. Although our graduation is postponed, I am spending time with family, going on runs for exercise, and playing lots of piano! At school, I was apart of the Western Piano Society which performed weekly volunteering at a local retirement home – Windermere on the Mount – to perform songs for the residents. I miss the performances and interactions with the seniors a lot and hope this can help bring a smile to your day!
