Bryanston High School student finds the right grades
It takes a long time to master any instrument, especially when it comes to the piano.
A person has mastered it for a number of years with ease and swagger, and you wouldn’t even think they’re still a high school student.
Ntando Ncube, a brilliant Bryanston High School student and resident of Morningside, started playing the piano after an unfortunate event happened that figuratively and literally shattered her dreams.
“Most of my friends played an instrument when I was growing up and I thought it was really cool. From the start, I knew the piano was an amazing instrument that I wanted to venture into, but I started with the violin One day I left my instrument on the floor not knowing something was going to happen and my older sister accidentally stepped on it which crushed my instrument and my dreams I stopped pursuing music for a while because I was really hurt,” the learner said.
As Ncube mourned her dreams and her violin, a sign that pushed her to pursue her passion came in the form of her father’s gift to her mother which was a keyboard player. According to Ncube, touching the keys for the first time reignited his love for music. At nine years old, she followed her passion and never regretted her decision.
“My family has always been music oriented. My mother has an angel voice and my father is a genius when it comes to writing lyrics. I get a lot of love and support from them and my three siblings, so it’s easy for me to express myself musically.
Although he is able to read music at the 6th grade level, Ncube prefers to play the piano through interpretation and emotions. His plans for the future are to graduate from college and expand his musical horizons.
