It’s quite hard to have your mom as a teacher – it’s like she’s not necessarily a ‘real teacher’ for me. But she’d always teach me to really hear the music and develop my ear and to try and hear the harmonics of the piano.
My mom’s a concert pianist so she started teaching me when I was around seven. When I was eight I started writing my own songs and kinda started putting piano and singing together. But I’m trained classically which is a big influence on me I think.
