Dawn Zulueta took to Instagram to express her joy after fulfilling her “longtime dream” to be able to have a public performance of her playing a piano. Her dream was to play Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata.”
Dawn shared in her caption that she began learning the song last year.
“I began last year, playing only by ear as I don’t know how to read musical notes & never had formal lessons before,” she wrote.
“This is far from perfect. Nonetheless, I am happy to have had the privilege of playing for a cozy crowd,” Dawn added.
