After 9 years of taking piano classes at Ellen Masaki School of Music in Kakaako, Lina had her last recital. I think this is one of her activities that had been her favorite, and learning/playing piano helped her quickly get into the other band instruments she excelled at in school (oboe, flute) as well as give her a basic foundation on which she taught herself guitar. Ms. Matsu, her teacher, was also pretty flexible in the pieces she taught Lina. When Lina wanted to learn how to play some Journey, Ms. Matsu taught her. Pretty cool.
But I guess the rule (Lou’s rule) was once she graduates high school, no more piano class unless Lina wanted to pay for it herself.
