Do you like music?
If I say I ‘like’ music, that would be the biggest understatement ever. I love it, not any particular music genre though, my taste of music is actually quite mixed up. I think music well expresses various kinds of human souls, which I like very much.
What's your favorite kind of music?
I am a rock buff and like all kinds of rock music, say, metal core, industrial metal, classic rock and melodic death metal. My favorite rock band is Oasis. They have been helping me get through my tough days ever since I first listened to their songs.
What kind of music is popular in China?
Well I guess it’s fair to say that pop music is quite popular among Chinese people. There are many famous singers who specialize at pop music in China, attracting millions of fans at all ages. My favorite pop singer is Jay Chow, whose music career has long been a huge success ever since his first debut in Taiwan.
Have you ever learned to play a musical instrument?
Yes, I once learned to play the harp when I was little. My mother taught me how to play the harp since she is a music teacher specializing at this musical instrument. But later, I had to give it up due to my heavy studying burden. I’d like to learn it again in the future if possible.
Which instrument do you prefer to learn, the piano or the violin?
Well, to be frank, I’d love to try both but would prefer to learn the piano first. I guess it may be a bit easier starting off, and also, it’s an important jumping off point to learn any other musical instruments in the future.
Do you think it’s important for children to learn a musical instrument?
Yes, I believe it is quite important. For I think that learning to play a musical instrument can teach children the following two things, perseverance and discipline, which I believe to be quite important. With music, they can also learn to appreciate life better.
