My German is improving! Slowly, but surely. I took four semesters of German in college, but I've forgotten a lot, so I study daily online with Duolingo.com for about 20 minutes, read as much as I can and bombard my friends with vocabulary questions.

Once my German is bangin', then I can actively hang out with them again more regularly. This is not a game! I've almost been here a year, and I really want to master this language. When I'm not studying German, I'll either be practicing piano, Indian vocal percussion, arranging background vocals in the studio or working on my next album. I try to leave my nights open to go to concerts and discover more cool Europe-based urban artists. Here are some of my latest discoveries...
