Music makes the world go round.

I love music! As a little girl, I used to listen to my Mum play the organ and sit beside her singing along to songs. When I was 4, she discovered that I could play by ear and decided to enrol me in Yamaha Music classes. Later, I got my very own piano and started piano lessons.

Over the years, I've been into all kinds of music and still enjoy listening to a wide variety of genres depending on what mood I'm in. My favourites would have to be Jazz, R&B, Soul, Pop, and Classical. I also enjoy listening to soundtracks, and good old 80's and 90's music!

Earlier this week, we were lucky enough to be invited to see the Renaissance Chamber Orchestra of Armenia. The orchestra performed at the American University of Dubai and it was our first time there. The acoustics were [surprisingly] great and we really enjoyed the concert.

Tonight, we've got tickets to see Boyz II Men, followed by live DJ acts courtesy of Claude Challe and Pete Tong. What a blast from the past! I can't wait.

It is nice to do something a little different. Am sure you are looking forward to the Boyz II men - are they playing at the tennis stadium?

I love live music and have seen lots of orchestras! There just is something about listening to an orchestra live.

I didn't know you could play the piano - have you ever thought of taking it up again?

Have a great night at the concert!

Yes, looking forward to it. It's going to be at the Madinat arena tonight. I love orchestras too! Unfortunately I don't play the piano very well, but I do enjoy it. My beloved piano is at home in NZ. Can't wait to be reunited with it! :-)
