- A video of my first exam on my major subject SINGING in the Netherlands!
The assignment was to sing 3 songs with a band, that I had to put together and instruct all by myself.
Here you see the songs of the set and the involved musicians:
Moondance – Van Morrison
Luka – Suzanne Vega
Let him go – Isabelle Wolff
Joost Scheltes – guitar
Tim van Buitenen – piano
Max Boquoi – bass
Marek Schnieders – drums
Special thanks on this point to the boys of my band, that supported me in making a really great exam.
I got the result of a “7“ which is a “well done“ in the Netherlands. You can reach 0 up to 10 points, but as good as never there is a 10 =D.
I also did the lead-sheets for all of the songs. This was the second time for me and really a challenge, because this time for this I used a special notation program called “Sibelius“.
( For all the musicians – here is a short video, to show you Sibelius https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1wRIPhabko )
When you understand the process (like with most of the things in life), it just works out fine.
Now I’m starting with my 2nd semester – next challenges.
You know what they say 😉 =
