Let's continue with the story. "As soon as he began to get near to the wood, all the great trees, the bushes, and brambles gave way of themselves to let him pass through. He walked up to the castle which he saw at the end of a large avenue; and you can imagine he was a good deal surprised when he saw none of his people following him because the tre…

My early memories of spooky stories were all about ghosts. When I was a toddler, my father and my grandmother used to tell ghost stories, in the living room, after dinner time. Me and my brother and sister would hold our blankets, wide-eyed, listening to the stories, so quietly. Interestingly, ghosts in oriental culture are conceived in a much more…

Little Red Riding Hood is one of my favorite stories when I was a kid. I believe the story was told in Chinese when I first learned about it. To my surprise Little Red Riding Hood is part of the Mother Goose Fairytale collected by French author Charles Perrault in 1696. This tells us Little Red Riding-hood is a folklore tale that has been passed on…
 
Mother Goose Fairytale: Cinderella A folklore story that has been told to children for generations is worth being told again and again. I am lucky to have found the original texts of Cinderella in the book of Mother Goose Fairytale, first collected by Charles Perrault in 1696 and translated by Charles Welsh and published in the U. S. in 1901. Let m…
 
I remember watching 2015's Disney movie Cinderella with my daughters a few years ago and have loved it. What impressed me very much was the folk song sung by Cinderella in the movie: Lavender's Blue. The enchanted melody and the round form makes the melody echo beautifully. It feels like the song is never going to end. In this episode Lisa is going…
 
When I first heard Hickory Dickory Dock, it was when I taught my five-year-old daughter to play the piano. I was intrigued by the cute mouse who ran up the clock with the clicking and came down with the sound of the clock striking every hour. What a wonderful way to teach young children about numbers, with literature and music combined in an imagin…
 
Italian opera composer Giacomo Puccini's hit opera Turandot (杜蘭多) adapted the tune of a very popular Chinese folk song Jasmine Flowers (茉莉花). I imagine Jasmine Flowers worked as a perfect material for Puccini to portray the princess as an oriental beauty. After the premiere in 1926 in Milan, Italy, Turandot has become one of the most performed and …
 
Momotaro is an iconic Japanese folk song that my father and my grandmother can sing to this day. I grew up in Taiwan where Japanese culture became prevalent after the Chinese Chin dynasty lost the the first Sino-Japanese war in 1895 and ceded Taiwan islands to Japan. As a result, Japan had ruled Taiwan for fifty years until the new, modern China wo…
 
Frère Jacques | Are you sleeping | The story, lyrics and music Frère Jacques is a very familiar folk song well loved by children. It originates from France. My earliest memory about this tune goes back to my kindergarten days. I learned this song in Mandarin Chinese, not in English, and the meanings in the Chinese lyrics were entirely different fro…
 
In this episode I would like to share with you how I came with the idea of writing the new children's song Little Puppy Lily's Magic Bone. Toys and magic has always been a popular theme in children's stories The imaginary world this song created reminds me of a TV cartoon show I used to love as a kid. In the show, this toy came to life after midnig…

The lyrics are dynamic, easy to remember and they rhyme well. The melody is cheerful... If you were to change the lyrics into something else what would it sound like?? --- Send in a voic…

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart adapted the melody and composed twelve variations on it as a piano so…
 
"In my very remote memories, my earliest musical experience was about songs. We react to music and language most naturally through songs. Before I was made to sit on the piano bench at the age of five to learn to play the gigantic instrument, I had known music by singing and dancing along my favorite songs from the radio." This episode is also avai…
 
In the spring this year, on a bright sunny Sunday morning, out of my desperation to have some comfort food, I lined up to buy a bag of Montreal style bagels from a new store that had just opened in downtown. I believed a bag of great bagels could definitely save me from feeling even more anxious about the on-and-off lockdown. Before noon I had eate…

I was fascinated by the high spirits among the little …
