~ The General And Children ~ By Yu Pyol Mi ~ Piano
Yu Pyol Mi learned how to play the piano at the Taedongmun Kindergarten in Pyongyang. She had an unusually good ear and became a kindergartner at the age of four. She was absorbed in learning the piano from the teacher Kim Yong Mi, a fresh, honour graduate of Pyongyang Kim Won Gyun Conservatory. Under her guidance Yu Pyol Mi stepped in the beautiful and fascinating world of music. Her extraordinary understanding and artistic sensibility surprised Kim Yong Mi and other teachers as time went on. She caught 13 and 15 accords, memorized musical scores quickly and mastered musical scores of difficult piano tunes when she performed the piano two or three times. She created more than 20 piano tunes in her kindergarten days. Yu Pyol Mi was moved to the Kyongsang Kindergarten affiliated to Pyongyang Music School.
