There are times when I just wanted to scream out loud or just cry it out when life gets so hard. Times and moments like this help me to be creative. I usually journal my thoughts, my feelings and turn it into song(s). This is one of the songs I scramble in my notes. This song talked about how hard it was to get back up when going through the rough times in life. Hope this song can resonate with you or accompany you in your toughest time. The good thing is feelings is all temporary. The story will not stop there. Do you want to meet that strong person in your life? Look in the mirror. Holding Strong... We'll get through it all.
As a composer, producer and pianist, I seek to complement a visual story with music. Being adventurous and bold while having fun are
paramount to my success as an artist.
As a piano teacher, I foster a welcoming environment for my students. With lots of encouragement and patience, I help them find courage, confidence and joy in their musical journey.
