If Music Be The Food of Love, Play On

December 11, 2018 Music, Música Clásica

Oh it’s been a very very very long time since my last post and here I wanna tell you. I’ve graduated and I’m a clinical psychologist now! I really love music so then I wrote a thesis about music therapy. Believe me, combining psychology, biology, and music is really something but thank God I enjoyed it a lot (and finally graduated). Ah, so let’s talk about music.  *** I’ve been a fan of Bandung Philharmonic, a pro orchestra from BandungRead More

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? 🙁 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

MOOC Project: Done!

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 🙁 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

From Strangers to Bestfriends

January 2, 2015 Friends

Selama taun 2014 aku punya dua kelompok temen baru, masing-masingnya cuma ketemu intens sama sekitar 6 bulan aja. They are AAX and Bandung Foodies. Bisa dibilang setengah taun pertama, hari-hari dihiasi sama AAX dan setengah taun terakhir sama Bandung Foodies. *** AAX (don’t ask why we named it AAX :P): mereka temen-temen kerja di Jakarta dan mulai deket dari bulan Januari. Ini agak aneh sebenernya, waktu itu mereka adalah anak-anak baru di kantor dan aku sendiri udah lebih lama. Aku jadiRead 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
