Stories

  • Music Learning was LuxurySeeing friends and relatives playing piano, Dante has been interested in learning to play piano since little. Due to family’s values, he did not get the chance until he could get a part-time job while facing public exam, HKCEE. He was told by school teachers to stop dreaming about learning music at university and see it as a hobby instead. One of the reasons was that he started later than people – youngest piano students can be 3 years old in Hong Kong.However, influenced by his drum teacher,「如果你想做嘅嘢係現實可行,而你死都要做到嘅話,咁你一定會做到㗎喎。只係遲早問題。」
    Translation: If what you wanna do is practical, and you are willing to die for it, you will make it. It’s only about time.This motivated Dante to organise events to encourage people to go for their dreams and achieved his university study.
