The Best Bass Advice I Have Ever Received: If you want to widen your limits on bass, you should practice every exercise and track in a very slow and a very rapid tempo as well, beyond the normal tempo.
How Does It Feel to Be the Winner of the 2015 Queen of Strings Competition: I’m very thankful and motivated to develop my bass skills. This is a great feedback for me.
Dream Gig: To play in the Wembley Arena in front of thousands of people.
Most Embarrassing Moment on Stage: I sneezed on my bass during a fast walking bass groove and the funny thing is that only the guitar player stopped playing because she had to laugh so much.
What Would I Be Doing If I Weren’t a Musician: I probably would be a German or English interpreter/translater.
