This song will keep you on your toes the whole way through.


About a year ago, I was surfing Youtube when I came across an anime video. As I watched it, what intrigued me more than the spiky-haired characters was the music. I was dying to know how to play so I could listen to it whenever I wished. I looked at the title of the piece: “Hikari: Kingdom Hearts, Part.1” . I searched for the scoresheets of the piece and found that they were much too advanced for me to play at that time.

Now, fast forward about ten months, or about 2 months ago. I have been playing the piano for about seven years. I have just finished mastering a song, and I am discussing what to play next with my piano teacher. I rack my brains, and suddenly, I remember that tune I heard 10 months before. I tell my teacher that I want to play Hikari. The next day, my mom and dad help me find a free scoresheet for Hikari, and as I plop the sheets onto my piano and look them over, I begin to feel excited. I play the first few notes, and they immediately remind me of the tune. I start to practice only with my right hand.

After two weeks of practicing with my right hand, I move to the left hand. The left hand notes are much more complicated than the right hand, and I am unable to even play them correctly because my hands are too small. I decide to invent my own left hand until I find a better solution to the problem. About a month later, I have made huge progress. I am finally able to play the whole song! I am so elated that whenever I practice the piano, I always practice Hikari for the majority of the time and I try to play it as much as possible. What I had thought impossible ten months before has now come true!
