Last month was quite a busy touring month with some great gigs all around Germany and Holland! (awesome private house concert in Maastricht – thanks Mathias & Tilly! ), private functions (in amazing venues – thanks Bruno), Concerts in Koln and Isernhagen in great venues! (thanks Michael and Stefan) and singer songwriter comps in Nienburg (thanks Petra) which I happened to WIN!! after making it through 3 rounds! how exciting! I got the opportunity to play an extra show and sing alongside the guys from the Spencer Davis’ Band which was a thrill! and I also had the opportunity to meet some great muso’s and sing together on stage! (thanks Mat Charles and Desmond Myers)

- 28th September 2pm – Donau 115, Neukoln – Cheeky unplugged totally acoustic gig coming up soon in Berlin..(it’s going to be recorded! so if you want to be on the live recording clapping and hollering.. you can come ;)) This is part of the event series at Donau115 in Neukoelln. The series is called Donaufruehstueck.
- It’s a brunch-time show (14:00 doors, show starts around 14:30)
– Cheap coffee and snacks are available for everyone.
– It’s all acoustic and/or battery powered. There will be no PA, and
nothing that plugs into a wall is allowed.
-aesthetically it’s nice to hear things raw and bare sometimes, and the
room sounds unusually good

After the success of my teaching at Berlin International Schule I’m starting to give private 1 on 1 music coaching lessons in Berlin Mitte! I will be taking students age 8-15yrs from 3-6pm Monday to Thursday. If you know anyone interested in learning more about vocal techniques, breathing, posture, songwriting and performance please pass this on!
The lessons are €30 for an hour of one on one coaching or €20 for half an hour. In this time we will be covering vocal warmups and scales, learning to sing cover songs, performance techniques, microphone technique, singing for the stage, breathing & posture, there will also be the option of learning songwriting skills too!
Singing is great for improving confidence and helps with vocal articulation, rhythm, body posture and overall happiness!
Now taking students aged 8-15yrs from 3pm-6pm Monday to Thursday. The coaching will be in Mitte, Berlin.
I was also lucky enough to have heaps of visitors over the last few months – including my Tanti, My Cuz Sophie, my Uncle & Aunty from Sydney and some friends! its’ nice to have a taste of home (oz) away from home and staying up late having cups of tea and speaking.. ‘Austraaaaaalyan’
