A new piano class taught by a kawaii pianist at a local elementary school helped me to hone my skills, my teacher said.
The lesson was held in the school auditorium Monday and featured an interactive live performance of the American musical “Camelot.”
Kawai Piano teacher Ayano Nishimura told the school’s children that it was the first time she ever had a group of children play piano together.
Nishimura said that her students are interested in learning how to play the piano but are scared of learning.
She said she decided to give them a lesson to get them excited about learning.
The students, ages 5 to 8, were told to sit in the back of the room and play along with the piano while watching the live performance.
Nishiimura said the piano played a song that was a tribute to the late actress, Maya Angelou.
The children are allowed to play and sing their own songs but are not allowed to sing or sing along with their teacher.
They are also told to not sing their parents’ names during the lesson.
After the lesson, the students went outside and Nishimura gave them a piece of paper that has the words “CALL ME A PIANO.”
