Since I was very little, I loved to sing and started to take singing classes when I was 14 years old. Every week for over six years I went to my vocal coach for feedback. He taught me the basics of singing and challenged me to sing more difficult songs. I practised songs of Demi Lovato, Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Pink, Paramore, Halestorm, Musicals and many, many more…
My greatest Idol is Demi Lovato. Her vocal talent is beyond amazing! I always admired her devotion to music and her career. She has mastered her techniques and vocal range. So I was inspired by her to learn that too. But of course, I still have a lot to learn to get that far. XD
When I moved to Utrecht for College, I had to quit my classes due to the distance. And during College, I didn’t have the time nor money (singing classes in Utrecht are really expensive…) to pick up any classes. So over the few College years, I began to sing and practice less and less on my own, until I didn’t sing anymore at all. I slowly began to feel unhappy and I felt like something was missing. But at first, I didn’t think that feeling unhappy was connected with me not singing anymore.
When I moved to my current apartment, January this year, I wanted to pick up my passion for music. I didn’t know what or how exactly, but I only knew I would. After researching the internet of possibilities in this small town, I found a small Choir group called ‘KECX’ who practised every Friday evening on the other side of Culemborg. At first, I didn’t know if I was the right person to sing in a Choir. I only sang vocal lead parts alone or in bands and never tried to sing with different vocal parts in a group. But I took that as a challenge and made an appointment with this Choir for an introductory meeting. And it was super awesome to learn all these new people and try out new songs!
Now a few months later, we are practising a lot of different songs at once. Like everyone is a fan of Pentatonix, so we have a few songs of them. And at 14 and 16 December 2018 we have our Christmas performances planned in Culemborg. So we are now practising a Christmas Repertoire. 😀
Next week we are going to make an Introduction video and PR material for own Website and Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/KECXkoor
So stay tuned! 🙂
