Inspired by my own zodiac (the year of rat), I created this Flash animation to send a message that music is a very accessible art and has no hierarchy. Many people, include professional musicians believe that only the gifted individuals can understand music properly and are worth being taught. Such elitist mentality often causes us to overlook the musical potential of the students and corrupt the definition of music education. We don’t just train students to become a professional soloist. More importantly, we instruct students how to think critically, be creative, and be discipline. It’s also part of their mental health foundation, in which the right side of the brain is actively exercised. I believe that ultimately, you become successful not because of what you do, but who you are.
