Concerning a lesson outside campus, what comes to my mind immediately is how to play ukulele a kind of instrument that gives me limitless freedom to be immersed in the music world, and I acquire the skill for free from my friend Salsa who has been playing guitar for many years.

The musical instrument has transforming effect for me because by playing the instrument could I gain more insight into my inner-self and learn that every skill could be learned through intensive practice. Therefore, | could try to learn a multitude of skills in the near future.

Also, I have to both work and study in my daily life, in which I must cope with too much stress. The instrument has great soothing effect for my nerves. Once I start to play, I calm down and become very relaxed. Familiar melody played by my own fingers sounds very different from the sound from the digital players.

Besides, learning ukelele helps me to lay a solid foundation for playing the guitar, which is another romantic instrument I hope to learn. They are like relatives, closely linked in the way of playing, including finger placement number of strings, etc.

In a nutshell, the instrument playing has been an inseparable part of my life.
