Hi everyone, I am funguypiano (fungi (• ◡•)|. I specialize in arranging K-pop, K-drama, Anime Songs and notating sheet music /piano sheet. I grew up in Hong Kong and I live in Toronto. I’ve played the piano for almost 10 years. I took 2-3 years of piano lesson and in fact, I dropped out of piano several times when I first started, mostly because classical music just didn’t interest me. The person who brought me back to piano is Animenz, an inspiring and professional youtube pianist/arranger. I was also influenced greatly by an elective class that I took in University, “Listening to Music”, which makes me realize the beauty of classical music. More importantly, I was heavily inspired by an anime, “Your Lie In April “. (,,•́.•̀,,)
Back in the day, I was the one who frequently browsed for sheets on the internet. It was really depressing because some of the songs that I really like do not have a music sheet (free or paid). ｡゜(｀Д´)゜｡I was extremely disappointed. So I had an idea, why don’t I just notate the sheet music myself? ƪ(˘⌣˘)ʃ That’s why I decided to create sheet music and share with everyone in the world through my YouTube channel. I want to spread my love, my emotions and my enthusiasm for music, as well as the songs that I like. I am so glad that there are actually someone who supported me and subscribed my channel. In 2017, I have gained over 100,000 subscribers, which is just amazing and unbelievable! Without all of your support, I wouldn’t have come this far and keep this channel alive for this long. I promise I will continue to try my best to provide the most interesting arrangements for all of you – K-pop, K-drama and Anime lovers (〃￣ω￣〃ゞ My another goal is to support other Artists through Patreon (See FAQ section for more details) with part of the money that I earned from this website, so we can change the world together and make the world more colorful !!
(~˘▾˘)~ All I can say is, “Thank you”. Cheers! ~(˘▾˘~)

What is Patreon?
Patreon is a platform that allows fans to support creators financially by funding a certain amount of money per month (Becoming a Patron). Each cover takes me more than 40 hours to arrange, practice, edit, record, notate and finalize! If you love my piano cover and want to support me in the creation of new K-pop, K-drama OSTs and Anime piano covers and piano sheets, please consider spare a few dollars to support me, but only if you can afford it! (づ￣ ³￣)づ Even $1 will make a huge difference!
Why is your support important? ♬♪♫ ヾ(*・。・)ﾉ
After 4 years of hard work, I have recently graduated from university and school is officially done. ｡゜(｀Д´)゜｡ I start to think about my future as well as the future of my channel. While it is amazing to imagine that I can dedicate all of my time to do the thing I enjoy the most in my life, I realize it’s still a dream after all. Even though I get a lot of support through Youtube, half of my music covers are copyright claimed and I don’t earn enough at the moment to make this dream become reality. With your support, I would be able to make this dream possible. My goal is to go full time on YouTube in the future and make music for a living. ლ(´ڡ`ლ)

I first started arranging songs from K-pop, K-drama and Anime 3 years ago. However, I was pretty lazy the first two years and didn’t really put much time into it. Having said that, I spent a considerable amount of time the past year and actually improved a lot during 2016. I learnt a lot of new arrangement ideas from other YouTube pianists.

Yamaha P-255 allows USB connection, so I record my performance (Audio or Midi) directly into a USB drive to ensure the highest sound quality. The VSTs that I am using are TruePiano / CFX Lite.
Downloading / Purchasing Sheet Music
What is the different between the Easy and Hard version sheet music?
Draft/ Easy piano sheet only contains the lead line and the bass note. It’s the most basic and easiest form of sheet music that provided specifically for beginners, improvisers and arrangers. It also serves as a reference for you to improvise or develop your own version of music. Hard version is basically the version I played in the video, and not every cover will have a hard version. For those covers that come with a sheet music package [ Hard version sheet music / Midi / Mp3 ], will generally be available at a price of USD $2.50~$2.99.
What is inside a $2.99 Hard version package?
The package includes the Hard version music sheet (some also include the Easy / Draft version) in PDF format, the corresponding performance MIDI file and the audio in MP3 Format.
What is MIDI and how am I supposed to use it?
MIDI carries event messages & data that specify the instructions for music, including a note’s notation, pitch, velocity! It’s extremely useful and you can use it on a variety of software to assist with learning, arranging and composing. For example, Notation Software (Sibelius, Finale, MuseScore, Guitar Pro, etc), Digital Audio Workstation [DAW] (Ableton, Logic Pro X, FL Studio, Garage Band, etc), Virtual Sound Technology [VST], and Piano tutorial software like Synthesia. However, please note that sharing my MIDIs or using it for commercial purpose is strictly prohibited! (,,•́.•̀,,)
