Or you could take up piano, where memorizing music is de rigour,
including very long pieces.

I always wondered why other instruments don't have this as the
norm - memorization, at least for me, seems to come pretty
easily. After hearing the nth rendition of a Sonatina by Kuhlau
by my eight year old I literally can sit down and play it. Heck,
I can do it even _without_ the vitamin E :^)
