Creative Development Projects

Along with my skills as a classical singer, I am always looking for ways to develop myself as a creative individual through various projects. Last year I undertook a project which allowed me to gain skills in a music single release and in music video documentary. It was a challenging process which proved to be extremely rewarding. I recorded the full creative process in my blog for my project ‘Somewhere in Time’, which can be found here: Somewhere in Time Blog Link
