About the piano
Galaxies, planets, rockets, satellites and stars are an inspiration for me. I believe science, music and art are one. I want to bring inspiration to the younger generations so they can grow not only in size but in culture and knowledge. The space is not black, has so many colors and textures to explore. Like Neil deGrasse Tyson said, “I think of space not as the final frontier but as the next frontier. Not as something to be conquered but to be explored.”
