What music means to me

You all already know about my passion for Musicals, but that’s not it, I’m in there way more.
I guess part of it definitely comes from my mum. She loves music, sang in a choir for most of her life, well...

It all started with me taking ballet lessons at the age of six. The ballet changed into Modern dance, into Modern Jazz, to Jazz and then finally Hip Hop. I was at a local Dance school and had training every week until I was 19.
When I was nine years old I started taking piano lessons and I still play. Nowadays I mostly choose my own songs and try to play something with the chords.
I started the singing when I started High School. I joined the school choir called Vocal Joy and sang in this choir four years. With that I also started taking voice lessons, which really helped me a lot. In my third High School year we performed the Musical „Linie 1“. It’s a German one and I must say I really enjoyed it.

Well, as soon as I finished High School I joined my mother’s choir. I just couldn’t cope without being in a choir. We had a concert under the theme of Cinema Classics. It was awesome, we sang great songs out of awesome movies. Now It’s my forth year in the choir already and I’m really enjoying it.

As you know already I am also a member of a Theatre Group and we performed Oliver! two years ago, now we are rehearsing for the The Sound of Music.

I love singing and also playing the piano while I sing, I really feel it’s a great way to express myself and my emotions. The lyrics give me the possibility to say what I want, in a great and different way. I started writing my own songs, which I find really challenging. One song is finished, it's called Just A Dream, here is the video, tell me what you think:
