It is always a little difficult to write about me,
basically it all comes down to, that I am so much grateful to existence, that playing music is in my life,
what a blessing, to close my eyes, play.
Just recently, someone who likes my music, wrote to me that when listening to my music she feels,
“... that everything is alright, that everything is okay…”
To me this is so simple, beautiful and fitting.
In fact, it is exactly this that seems to be transported in my playing - the space where you feel that everything is just alright. The music I play is saying to me all the time that everything is alright, and that my heart can relax, allowing me to feel safe. ( I guess thats why I play in the first place)
I was born into a family where no music or creativity took place but at 10 years of age, my school music teacher noticed my musical joy. (I am still grateful that he talked to my parents).
So I learned how to play the mandolin and switched after a few years of study to playing the guitar.
For me playing music was like entering a world of my own,
a world inside of me where I could be with myself and forget the world around me and feel safe.
After few years I started thinking that I could / should be a better player;
that I should improve my technical skills on the guitar. I started learning more classical and jazz music. Through the ambition I put into my technical study, I became a better and more sophisticated player.
It did not take long that I became frustrated. Nothing new was flowing out of me musically anymore
... all innocence and inspiration was lost. It was painful to experience.
Later I realized, I had lost the natural feel and approach towards the instrument and playing music itself.
I sold all instruments and did not play music anymore for more than 10 years.
It was a time of heart pain, self reflection and loss when the impulse to play music returned.
During this time, I was searching for music which helped me to go through it all,
music which helps me to widen and expand my heart that everything what is, can be there.
but I did nor find much music ...
so I followed the impulse to play the music myself which I wanted to listen to.
I started playing piano and keyboard as I had no past experience with these instruments.
And after a time, playing guitar returned as well.
The music I started playing from that point on until today has been music which lets me breathe in and out with the feeling that everything is alright; that everything is okay as it is.
It took a while till I found out that the music I play is touching others in their heart as well ...
This leaves me with a deep feeling of gratitude.
