Mrs. Doi, who is the teacher of traditional Japanese dance, took her daughter to a classical piano lesson when she was five years old. Of course it was the first June after her 5th birthday. Since there is a saying in Japan, that if you take your children to their first lessons in the first June after their fifth birthday, they will keep studying for a long time. Keiko loved her first piano lesson. So Mrs. Doi took her to the lessons every week, in rain or shine.
Keiko was a good girl in school. She stood up for her friends when some bullies acted mean to them. She was elected as president of her class several times
