It’s been ten years of Artiden!
This year, I realized how uniquely I perceive the world because of Asperger’s. Now I see why I’ve struggled with certain daily life activities. Thank goodness I have the discipline to keep writing. In fact, someone figured out that I had Asperger’s from my writing. Here are some personal articles about Asperger’s and more.
- Why I suspected that I had Asperger’s early in the year.
- There is a high chance that people who excel in piano have Asperger’s as it takes a lot of concentrated and solitary practice. Most people don’t figure it out until later in life.
- In my writing, I realized that there were many situations where I didn’t know how I was supposed to act. That is a sign of Asperger’s. I could fake social skills and you wouldn’t know how hard it is. In fact, I am so good at faking it that healthcare professionals don’t believe how hard it is for me to remember to eat lunch.
- The stories about my dad were hard to write but here’s one of my favourite. Or this one about how I would want to be remembered.
These piano tips were popular and I will focus on more piano-specific content next year.
- Ghosting, a technique to improve finger independance in piano.
- Playing faster repeated notes.
- Chunking, how to learn music faster. I use this in almost all of my piano practice sessions, and it works for any instrument.
I started recording and arranging music. This is Interstellar, the piano solo.
This is Beauty and the Beast, the piano solo.
I played a mashup of Overcooked and Rachmaninoff, with Sydney. Here’s some behind the scenes on how we wrote it. We both teach piano online, but different styles.
You can probably notice the difference in video quality as I’ve improved my recording setup.
Thank you for coming along and I’m quite certain I’ll continue to learn about myself, and music. Feel free to ask me piano questions. Ask me any question. I need to figure out what to write about next.There are 12 comments below
