2013 marked the beginning of a new era for me and I had reached a stage where I was able to explore some old hobbies and pick up some fun new ones. I had been thinking for months about starting a blog but the fear of not being able to deliver, laziness and my crazy irregular workloads caused me to keep pushing pause on this new project.
When I finally built up the courage to start, I decided that Confessions of a Chopinholic (pronounced show-pang-ho-lick!) would be somewhat of an online concoction of my favourite shopping finds, DIY projects, recipes, bargains, fashion and beauty trends and finally share some insights into the world of classical music, notably, classical piano music. I consider myself first and foremost a pianist and music is so a part of my life that there is a little birthmark on my left leg.
I have numerous family and friends who are not musicians and have never, ever dipped their little toe in the big pool of classical music. So this blog will not have geeky mathematical analysis of musical scores (I can't do those anyway) but snippets on how to approach and appreciate this diminishing art form.
My first "confession" should be up very soon so stay tuned but in the mean time, have a great weekend, let me have my coffee and see you soon!!
