The first compositions of the musician were born in that period.

Trinh Vinh Trinh engraved his teachings. He used to buy a lot of books to read and teach the children. He forced the five girls to learn to walk every morning with a book on their heads, to walk gracefully and gracefully. Musicians always respect etiquette, or instruct children not to pick up food in front of adults during meals, not to rest their hands on the table when there is a superior. Trinh Cong Son keeps a simple lifestyle. In the house, he can sit in any corner, idly playing and writing music. Those memories were collected by her, becoming documents for actor Avin Lu to play the musician.
