Fun random facts about me!


I LOVE the colour yellow – because it's so BRIGHT and CHEERY!

Beethoven is my favorite composer.

First favorite song in the whole world: Fur Elise – by Beethoven.

Favorite Symphony: Beethoven's 5th in C minor.

I love MINOR keys…..because the music sounds so sad and reflective.

Playing octaves is AWESOME! Love love LOVE pieces by Rachmaninoff too! They are so LOUD!

I just have to mention Chopin. LOVE songs by him too….

I prefer loud songs, lots of accents, and lots of pounding octaves. Soft is okay, but LOUD works for me. I have a heavy touch.
