Another introduction

Hello — I’m Chris Yu, a senior in computer science. I’ve been playing music in some way since the fourth grade, when I picked up the trumpet. I studied trumpet formally for several years, and I was very active in youth orchestras and ensembles throughout high school (and unfortunately less so during college). For the past few years, I’ve also been teaching myself to play the piano. One of my favorite pastimes has always been just to sit down with an instrument and improvise or play things by ear. I’d love to have the tools to take those musical ideas and turn them into a composition, especially blending traditional acoustic instruments with electronic ingredients. I’m looking forward to taking this class!
