I work with Plastic Surgeon Dr. Tammy Wu in her Plastic Surgery & Wellness Center where I perform acupuncture, general surgery, and vein procedures.

If you're looking for my violin "video" it's the other one that says "Calvin Lee Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto."
It's basically my violin playing sound track set to a bunch of distracting pictures. Orchestra on the sound track is the Brown University Orchestra back in the early 1990's (yikes!) The pictures are from about a year ago. Nevermind that video, focus on this one!

This video was specifically made for the Van Cliburn Amateur Piano Contest on YouTube.

I try to apply what I know from the violin to my piano practice. I've had great violin teachers. I'm pretty new to piano (just got the piano 2 years ago), so all comments and criticisms appreciated. I did play a bit as a child before I could even reach octaves, but my teacher thought it was best that I stopped piano and focus on violin - well, I took that advice and stopped piano (also before I could reach octaves) and did just that - focused on violin. Through time (sadly decades) the piano just disappeared from my life.

Don't get me wrong. I love the violin. But now I want to make up for lost time on the piano. I've had three lessons so far since starting piano again. I've been mainly practicing on my own at odd hours.

Thanks to everyone who has commented and encouraged me.
