Before there were languages in my life, there was music – which in itself is a language as well, as I’m well aware.

But I never forgot my first language, in fact, I never left it; I merely shifted priorities around regarding what is part of my professional …

I had mentioned a few weeks ago that there would be some changes a-coming. Well, one has already come, albeit a somewhat temporary one – this is only an interim solution, as I am still not entirely sure about the final solution, but I needed something quick, so here it is: Click here… and here… and here… to see some new things!

Being a musician myself and having started my musical education at the tender age of three, I wonder if my musical talent has anything to do with my linguistic ability – or if it maybe even helped it emerge. To be sure, I’ve met plenty of musicians, including professional ones, who have …
