I aspire to be a video game programmer. In reality, it seems that I'll be pursuing a CE (hardware) degree, which I'm hoping will open the door to handheld gaming.

I'm fluent in C, C++, PHP, and regular old SQL. I know HTML and CSS, and work my hardest to keep my code as close to the standards as possible, except where Internet Explorer doesn't support any standard way to do what I want.

I play piano and tuba, and love to write my own music when I can find the time. My favorite video game is Final Fantasy IX.

comment Is it easier to play “softly” on a grand piano?
I guess I should point out: I will soon be auditioning for the music program at my college on piano, and although I'm not sure, I think the audition is on a grand piano. If that's the case, and there's a big difference, I suppose I need to go straight to that and avoid trying to adapt to the upright.

comment Does one play a song better after “sleeping on it”?
That makes a lot of sense when you think about it logically. After all, when you learn something, you're essentially creating or strengthening pathways in the brain-- those things don't grow instantly, it takes time for them to develop. The most optimal way to learn something, thus, is short daily sessions, as opposed to a few very long sessions. I think this is true regardless of discipline.

comment When singing, how to avoid being distracted by vocal harmony or other vocal lines?
This technique can fail for many types of choral music, so be careful. You'll need to be able to quickly mentally relocate your Do when the key changes. Songs that use unusual scales or that have lots of unwritten key changes with accidentals can be difficult to apply this to. (Consequently, these are the kinds of songs that I have a LOT of trouble with.)
