A self-taught guitarist and singer with experience of working with musical scores for Opera houses.
My strong love for music constantly improves my determination, perseverance, self-discipline and dedication. Learning new pieces of music and mastering an instrument takes time, skill, practice and an enormous amount of passion.
As a solo performer I have no intention of achieving a career in music, but at the same time I wouldn’t be able to write without my ear for music. It’s my special ingredient.
I gladly dedicate hours of practice to maintain and develop my skills as a guitarist in order to perform the tunes I love the way I want them. At the same time I have the privilege of working with musical scores and have music around me. This lets me be part of extraordinary musicals and operas that are bigger than me as an individual musician.
