Atharva's Journey When I was just 10 years old, I began playing on an old keyboard that was lying around at home. I was instantly hooked and played every day. Not too long after, I began taking formal lessons and discovered my love for playing and learning new pieces. I've taken Trinity grade exams, but nowadays, at the age of 19, I prefer to learn new pieces on my own.
One of the things I love most about the piano is its versatility. I enjoy a wide range of music, from hip hop to classical to film soundtracks, and being able to play these songs on the piano has always been incredibly satisfying. I find the process of building muscle memory through repetition to be particularly fulfilling, and I take great pleasure in learning new pieces from scratch to build my confidence.
For me, playing the piano has always been a source of comfort after a long day. I am incredibly grateful to have discovered this passion at such a young age and to be able to share it with others who are just beginning their own piano journeys. There is nothing quite like seeing a student's face light up when they master a new piece, and I feel privileged to be a part of their musical growth and development.
