how it all began
When I got pregnant in 2016 I wondered how I could still be on the "scene" as guitar player in a time I couldn´t get out the door as much as I liked to.
That´s when I started making YouTube videos. All I had was an old I Pad and a couch that seemed to be the perfect spot to get started.
Every monday I´ve been publishing a video about something that I either been working on or that one of my students was curious about.
It´s a lot of fun to make these videos. There´s so much to learn in so many different categories - how to use the camera, how to edit the material I filmed and last but not least how to explain playing jazzguitar in a reasonable way.
So the process is the thing. And that´s probably the best thing I learned when I started making those videos.
