comment Able to recall music in its correct key, but don't have perfect pitch — what is it called?
@Matthew I can only accurately recall A440 if I picture my violin tuning routine as a 4-note "melody" (A, AE, AD, DG). The pitch alone doesn't come to me. Maybe most people are capable of applying perfect pitch only in certain contexts, and for me (as well as reinierpost's choir), it's only with melodies. That, or my shoddy relative pitch is throwing me off -- and there are definitely some aspects of relative pitch that I really need to work on.

comment How much being a touch-typist can help learning the piano faster?
Touch typing hasn't helped me keep my hands relaxed either. My violin students have had stiff hands for the first few months, and having started proper piano lessons just last month, my teacher tells me that my hands are stiff too, particularly my wrist. I think tension comes more from learning something new, not from any kind of transferable technique.

comment How can I significantly improve my hand independence on piano?
I've been teaching myself piano recently and started trying the Inventions. Good to know I'm on the right track.

comment How can I overcome the fear of performing in front of an audience?
Might be, not too sure. 7/11 tends to localize their selection, so they might have it if there's demand for it in your area.

@Binary Phile -- Do you ever actually drink coffee when you do that? Because for me caffeine just makes things even worse. Then again, I have an unusually low tolerance to caffeine.

Also, the only reason it's short is because it's an easy question to describe -- not because it's trivial.
