I Need Friends. :)Music people.
I really want to go to school for music composition! -- I've been writing and playing by ear my entire life.. I was trained on sax, flute and clarinet and breezed through them.. as well as choir. Had my mind set on piano and singing.. Been playing for about 18 years now. Taught myself guitar and play that pretty well now, too. I'm a classical girl tho, blues aren't as easy for me... although I'm getting better.. after learning guitar it's helped a lot. I learn everything by ear, though. Although I can sight read for vocals and other instruments.. piano is a B*** for me as far as reading music! Why does piano music have to be so hard.. and what exactly can they teach me if I already write classical compositions and ballads? I can read piano music but I can't play it instantly like I could if I listened to it! Reading the notes don't register to my 'mind-ear' -- I think I have super music memory because all the classical songs and my own compostitions I have memorized. But, I'm aftraid if I don't start recording all my stuff.. sooner or later I will forget!
Anyways. Hope to find some common ground with some cool people and maybe share some insight. It's my first day so don't laugh at me.
I'm easily embarrassed.
