I'm good at remembering people, but I suck at numbers.

Also, if I have to say something and I don't say it right away, I'll forget what I'm about to say. > <

I have good picture memory for example with faces and I think I'm pretty good with directions too.

My auditory memory is pretty bad. For example in English listening comprehensions though I understand mostly what is said when I need to answer to the question I don't remember anymore what was said.
Also remembering numbers is hard for me for example accurate years in history. I'm still not 100% sure what my phone number is

If I don't use the mathematical formula or some foreign word often then I forget it pretty fast though I could have learned it fast.

Generally I remember better stuff I find interesting and worse stuff that I'm not interested in.

I only tend to remember important stuff that I need to do in the future like appointments, work schedule, birthdays, etc. If I try to remember something in the past I'd already forgotten about it.. like what I had for dinner last night..

I can remember anything that i deem as important. (Friends/Families birthdays, game release dates, school stuff) But anything i dont see as important is completely disregarded within at least five minutes.

Theres times where i do something.. uhh for example turn on the light. I KNOW i did it because the light is on, but i just totally forget that i did indeed just turn it on only a few seconds ago. Then eventually i doubt that i even did it at all.

I hope to be a professional musician. As it stands, I want to compose, teach, improvise, and perform music, but haven't quite figured out the best way to do it all.

Apologies for the delayed reply.

If you'd like to do all of those things, it's certainly possible. The easiest to attain of those professions you're currently seeking is teaching, so you could probably use that as your first and foremost job. As a teacher, whether a school teacher or just a private teacher, you'll want to look into performing in either unofficial or actual bands, which won't be difficult as long as you meet the right people. I was lucky to have met many talented and renown professionals at a younger age, which facilitated the process of getting the jobs I have now. I only have a general idea of how to get into the teaching profession, as I have never and won't ever want to do so.

If you really want to perform professionally and make that your forte, you're going to be looking at a lot of hours working with a professional on the instrument(s) you want to play. I also recommend getting to know your college professors very well and get to know some people they know. The more people you know [well], the easier it'll be for you to find a career. If you haven't already started private lessons, you'll want to begin immediately. I don't know how it is here, but where I'm from, most aspiring musicians start learning to master few instruments in middle school and the late bloomers start in high school (or the freaks like me that basically start at birth).

The harder one, composing, will depend on your heart and your brain. I recommend writing a few chorales a week (with necessary embellishments, of course), along with transcription practice, as unorthodox it may seem. I normally do piano arrangements for free, but you can do other arrangements and even charge for it (assuming you do it well lol). But that way, you'll have good ideas for your own songs, as well as proficiency in writing, voice leading, etc. If you're good at making music, then you won't have to worry about finding your place in the composing world.

^This reply + your avatar = perfect.


In reply to the OP: I have a terrible memory, except when it comes to numbers. Dates, quantities, formulas, etc. just seem to stick. Everything else does not. I'm always trying to improve my memory though ^.^

I have a pretty good memory, but during periods of inactivity I randomly forget and re-remeber things.

I'm oddly great at remembering big moments and apparently decent enough at remembering academic things most of the time that I seldom have to study to get a good grade (even in college)... I can't seem to memorize kanji so easily, however. But I'll remember some things that others forget, and when I bring it up later I almost have to assume that they don't remember it depending on the detail in question. .w.;
