Alex's Answer

My cousin lives far away

Your Question

Hi alexxx so I’m the one who asked the question about the keyboard. So, my cousin lives far from me and never comes to my boat, I go to her house. So We can’t practice together. Although I wrote that when I was mad so I don’t know.


Hello there! It’s great to hear from you again.

First off, we want to say that it’s totally okay to express your feelings, whether you’re happy, mad, or anything in between. Emotions are a big part of being human, and it’s important to acknowledge and understand them. So, don’t worry about writing in when you’re feeling upset – it’s a safe space here.

We can understand how frustrating it must be to want to practice the keyboard with your cousin but not being able to do so because of the distance between you two. It sounds like you value spending time with your cousin and enjoy making music together. Distance can indeed be challenging, especially when it comes to activities you love doing with someone special to you.

While it’s tough not being able to practice together in person, there are still ways you can work on your keyboard skills and stay connected with your cousin. You could try video calling each other while practicing, sharing recordings of your progress. Technology has made it easier than ever to bridge the gap between long distances, so take advantage of that, with permission from your parents.

Remember, the most important thing is to keep communication open with your cousin. Let them know how much you enjoy making music together and that you’re eager to find ways to continue practicing, even if you’re physically apart. Your dedication and enthusiasm for music will surely shine through, no matter the distance between you two.

Lastly, don’t forget to give yourself some grace. It’s okay to feel frustrated or disappointed, but try not to dwell on those feelings for too long. Focus on the positive aspects of your relationship with your cousin and the joy that making music brings to both of you.

Take care, keep practicing and keep making beautiful music!
