About meIn retirement from decades of computer design in Silicon valley, I am a 64 year old Astrophysicist, a second career that I do living alone from a cottage in the forest near the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.
I learned a bit of piano as a small child to the level of Minuet 3 from Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach.
I loved the classical music my father let me put on his record player. Sometimes I listen to my old favorites, the Bach double violin concerto, the Mendelssohn violin concerto in E minor, the Mozart Clarinet concerto in A and the second movement of Beethoven's 7th while reading full score, to focus my attention.
I recently bought a nice weighted key Williams Allegro2. I carry an A-440 tuning fork always, and while walking in the forest or driving to the observatory practice Solfage. I understand music theory from the Physicist's point of view, that is "On the Sensation of Tone" by Helmholtz.
