I have worked in a technical support role for several industries and love the problem-solving aspects of my work as well as helping clients maximize their productivity.

I'm driven by a life-long curiosity about the world and people around me. My passions range from creative writing, photo-editing, performing and listening to music, problem-solving puzzles such as sudoku, cooking and baking, all types of crafting, sewing and yarn arts, creative resources on the internet and learning new apps for my favorite toy...my iPhone.

comment Baroque Performance Tips
Perfectly clear! I've heard that sort of ornamentational improvisation used in Handel's Messiah. Thanks for the clarification! If I'm not mistaken, that sort of improvising includes the addition of grace notes, turns and trills. Best of luck!

comment Baroque Performance Tips
By improvise, do you mean adopt a baroque style or actually deviate from the written notes and improvise music?

comment How does one start learning music theory?
Excellent answer that outlines a typical music theory curriculum (very similar to one I followed in school). OP should benefit from such a thorough overview.

comment Capturing music in my head
@Tony- I totally agree with you and learning to sing (and hear) the intervals has been extremely useful to me, too, as a singer. I guess I was just thinking about how overwhelmed the OP might be with everything needed to be learned. Thx for feedback!
