As some of you know, I am a college student working towards a double major in English and Music. Last year was my first semester in Music Theory (even though I've been at my college doing gen-eds for three years now... :P). I was so excited! I had a lot of fun last year learning as much as I could about music and how it all works together. I also started piano lessons. But the best part of all was learning how to write music.
Now, I've been a musician for years... I sing, and write songs, play the guitar, and I could still plunk out songs on the piano, even though I couldn't read or write music. But now, I'm starting to understand how music works together and it's PHENOMENAL! I love it so much!
I spent a lot of time in the piano practice rooms last year, composing small pieces and writing down the music. One of the pieces that I wrote I was actually able to play for my piano final, which was super exciting! Afterward, I decided I wanted to be able to listen to it, so I found a software that let me play around with synthesized sounds to create music. Following the sheet music I had, I put the notes in and played around with them a bit, adding some here and there. This is how it turned out and I hope you like it! The song is titled "Waves" because the music made me think of the ocean. It's a little repetative, but I hope in this next semester to be able to add bits and pieces to it to make it more... eh... interesting. :)
