I'm Maria. I'm really excited for this class though I admit I'm a bit anxious as well. Unlike most of you, I have not taken music 1421, and all this electroacoustic technological jargon people throw around in class kind of scares me. But I welcome challenges and I'm looking forward to learning all about the software and electronics we'll be using.
A little bit about me: I'm a senior in Arts and an Econ and Math major. I'm so happy I found time to take this class finally - I've been wanting to take it since freshman year. I think that Music 2421 along with Wines will be the higlights of my last semester at Cornell. I'm from Moldova - born and raised. I started playing piano there and dancing ballet and ballroom. I've been playing classical piano for over 12 years and have a teacher's certification. I started singing a while back as well. Now I'm starting to focus more on Jazz piano and writing my own songs. I have written a few pop songs and hope that I can make them better through the knowledge I will gain from this class.
