Wow, Emma! I didn’t know that you can play the piano. That was an impressive performance!
Thank you, Ron.
How long have you been playing the piano?
I have played it since I was seven years old. My mom made me attend
piano lessons when I was in elementary.
No wonder you’re good at playing it.
How about you, Ron? Do you play any instruments?
Yes. I played drums before. I was also a part of the drum and lyre band in elementary and high school.
But do you still play the drums? I want to hear you play it too.
No, I hadn’t played it in quite a while. I need to practice a lot.
