When I was little I played the piano, I sometimes felt happy and sometimes felt pressure. Later on in order to take the exam for music class in junior high (The teacher had class and was pretty) ps. The latter was my own reason. And so I learnt to play the cello, but afterwards I still didn't go to take the exam. So I stopped playing the piano and cello for a period of time. But privately I still played some pop songs (It was at this time when I came into contact relatively more with pop songs). I started to grasp melody and combining chords. I felt really happy, relaxed and not so much pressure. Later I studied music in high school. And once again it renewed my contact with classical music. At times classical, at times pop. Actually I started to write songs when I was in junior high, it's just that right now I think I must have been blind as an owl. Songs I thought were very diao back then, if you listen to it now, it might not be like what you thought it was like. I hope I can still admire myself in the future when I listen to this 'Jay Album', that I think is very diao right now.
