Get Well Soon, Bilo!

June 24, 2017 Random Things

So since I live home alone, my only friend is Bilo my almost 7y/o kitty-girl (if the invisible ones don’t counted). But in these last few weeks something weird¬†happened to her. She started to eat palm-fiber from my house broom and vomit it out later. Bilo what’s happening to you? ūüôĀ Then I asked Giza’s hubby who’s a vet. He said long-haired cats like her¬†will usually eat grass because of its high fiber, so she chews the broom¬†for missed theRead More

March 2, 2016 mirzart

Been about a week from the day I said yes to¬†Kat. Now guess what: all finished¬†and I’m so glad that Kat and her team like my result! Kat said that she want a picture of me and her playing drum expressively. It’s so fun that in fact I can’t play that instrument at all. But then the omg-i’m-so-excited feeling didn’t went that well since I found that my drawing is so bad ūüôĀ So here I tell you the process.Read More

Drawing Picture for MOOC

February 25, 2016 mirzart

In October 2015 I participated to a music therapy workshop held by my campus. The speaker is Dr. Katrina McFerran, a board certified music therapist from University of Melbourne, Australia. After the workshop, I made a digital sketch of all of workshop participants and uploaded it on Facebook. I think it’s been a quite long time after the sketch I made, but yesterday I got a message from Katrina and¬†she asked me if I interested to contribute to her newestRead More

JoJo in 40 Days

August 18, 2014 Music

Another concert in 40 days and I’ll play a K-Pop song. Can you believe that I’ll play K-Pop at a classical concert? It all started when Mrs. Mela, my piano teacher, asked me to join the concert and offered me to choose my own song, then I told it to my friend Giza. She said, “I’ll come to your concert if you play K-Pop.” Then I randomly choose JoJo by SHINee. I submitted it to¬†Mrs. Mela the song and sheRead More

Piano Tutorial: Do and Don’t

July 15, 2014 Music

1. Do: lift your wrist. Don’t: rest your wrist on piano keys. Even though it sounds sooo basic, but yes some of pianists still do this lazy-man gesture. 2. Do: put your repertoire at the front holder.¬†Don’t: put the repertoire on the floor. 3. Do: normal feet position. Right feet to push the right and middle treadle, left feet for left treadle.¬†Don’t: cross your feet. You’re playing piano, not attending arisan ibu-ibu. That’s all, thank you and hope it helpsRead More

Yesterday my piano teacher asked me to join a piano concert on this September yeay! And I said (absolutely) yes, OMG! On last August 16th I said to myself that I¬†want to play piano at concert, again. For this one, I will play Footpath in the Rain, a song by M. Konishi at Centre Culturel Francais in Bandung on September 23rd. Even though it’s only a one minute song I’ll learn it hard. It was D-18 when I asked toRead More
