Hidemi Tickles the Ivories
Hidemi Sato joined our King's-Edgehill School community two years ago and has now returned to see out her Senior year. I am very proud of Hidemi for a whole lot of reasons, but here is one of exceptional accomplishment: Hidemi completed her IB SL Solo Performance Certificate in music last spring with stellar results, despite Distance Learning! She was at home in Japan when COVID-19 restrictions became a reality. At the very same time, all of the work and portfolios were due for submission to the International Baccalaureate programme. This was concerning enough; however, the requirements were also modified at the last minute. Needless to say, all of our IB students were scrambling to upload their work. In Hidemi's case, she managed to rent a piano studio and record her selections. She made the modifications to her research documents and other related material and achieved the upload deadline within a few mere hours of it.
I am pleased to report that Hidemi continues to take her music seriously and practices piano almost every day, even though she is not enrolled in my music class this year. Here is a lovely piece composed by Yukie Nishimura, that Hidemi has recently learned. Enjoy!
Hi, I'm Hidemi Sato from Grade 12. I like music and I'm glad that I have a place to play the piano at KES.The title of this song is " Hajimari no Sora (The sky of a beginning)" in Japanese. I'm happy if you like this song. Thank you :)
