Sängerschmiede Part 1 – A new journey

Most of you know, that I’ve been taking vocal coaching for a bit over two years now. It helped me lots to work on my voice and develop a better stage presence. During that time I also noticed, that singing (my own songs) is actually what I want to do and the ukulele is my support in that. I guess I always just used the ukulele to accompany my singing, but for some reason I felt that this was not enough for a very long time. That I needed to learn to play more intricate fingerstyle and add more of, I don’t even know what exactly, to my playing. Somehow it just never felt enough.

My plans for 2020

The new year is still very young but I already have tons of plans and I want to share some of them with you, But first a little back story, to better understand my future plans. I started my ukulele journey about 3,5 years ago. Then about 2 years ago I ventured on Instagram and I am still very happy about all the support I get there. 2018 was all about getting the basics of the ukulele down. I focused a lot on learning all kinds of songs, playing and practicing regularly.
