Christmas Presents 2013

Hi, everyone! Today was Christmas Day for me! My music-related presents contained some rosin and a few blank composition books I can use for sketches or whatever for music - I don't have to print out new sheet music all the time. I had also spent the 23rd making a Batman video game for my dad, who loves Batman. I didn't compose the music, but it was still a fun game to make and watch him play in the morning on the big-screen TV. :) I also got an iPhone (I'm typing this with it right now!) and GarageBand on it is kind of cool to see a virtual violin when playing music. :)

And later, of course, I got my violin and played some Christmas carols, so that was fun. So yeah! That's about it. Hope you had (or will have) a fantastic holiday season, as I think I did. Bye! :)

Oh yeah, and I got the full version of Finale 2014! This will not only be awesome to be able to easily do key and time changes, but for The King of the Aliens, I'll be able to convert the MIDI to an mp3 easily for the soundtrack! I'm so happy!! :)
