Mary was born with an arm and a leg that weren’t completely developed. When she showed an interest in playing piano at age five, her grandma approached teachers who would take her as a pupil. The first three piano teachers turned her down due to her handicap. Luckily, the fourth teacher accepted her.
Recently I received an email from Jackie who lives in Texas. With her permission, I’d like to share her email with you.
“Hi Ms. Wong. I don't have a video, but I was able to make a recording. I started on the lesson on color chords/maj7 chords today. For the first time, I was able to play something that wasn't written on paper and it didn't sound half bad. There are a few "oopses" but I was trying to capture the moment before it escaped me. I just started playing what I felt using the Fmaj7 chord as a starting point. Wow, how liberating!!!!!!!!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
I turned on my USA Today’s app on my iPhone as usual last night. Then, I heard the news: One of the founders of Apple, Steve Jobs, passed away.
Steve Jobs was the modern day’s Beethoven in terms of influence. The world would be a different world without Beethoven’s music. It’s rare to meet someone who hasn’t heard of “Fur Elise” or “Moonlight Sonata.”
