Video Blog!

Standard

For only 1$ you can unlock all of my update & sneak peek videos regarding my upcoming 3rd release, which will be a multi-album affair! I played with the idea of a video blog back in 2013 and started this written blog back in 2015 due to fans asking for one. Early this year I started a Patreon where I release two new video updates every month! So if you want to follow a consistent video-blog there is now an opportunity to do so.

If you pay more than 1$ you unlock more exclusives such as music lessons, care packages, etc; If you like my artistry & you are curious as to what I’m doing, then please sign up!

Once I’m done with my 3rd “album,” there will obviously be more creative projects in the works, since I’m always in the middle of a creative process!

Here are some “blog-style” videos that are publicly available on my YouTube! Sign up to see my “Patreon-only” video library.

Final Flier Summer Evening of Song (Berit Hagan) A4

Super Cool To See This. Thanks!

I’m not complaining! I can’t believe the longevity of classical music. It is quite something to behold.

The U.S.A. has always been my nr.1 market, followed by the U.K. & Norway. Considering how huge America actually is and how much music that is released there constantly, I cannot believe that this Zombie-Album has been hanging in there for roughly 4 years! I think that says it all. My metal music sold as well, but it never officially charted on Amazon and/or iTunes (to my knowledge), but it did get me into the top. 3 as the only unsigned artist on the streaming site ReverbNation.

In addition it obviously struck a chord with press people. I guess it is cool with a female rocker, kicking ass, in a fake uniform πŸ˜› (mwha-ha-ha)

I thought that I was going to release a Major Label Classical Crossover Album last year, but ended up ill unfortunately, now I’m working on original music since I needed something lighter, to bring me back … something that could excite me instantly.

There will be more Classical guitar playing down the road, but for understandable reasons I just had to go back to what initially inspired me to pick up my 1st instrument…

Classical virtuoso music is incredibly tough on the upper body and I guess that I can consider myself lucky since I’ve never encountered any issues with my wrists and that I haven’t been permanently damaged, yet.

Classical virtuoso music is also tough mentally, as you sit for months repeating runs over and over for hours every day, in addition to the pressure of playing these high-performance pieces live, where any tension or nervousness will affect the tone.

Everything and anything is audible.

You have to be married to your instrument and your routine. In addition to copying with motivation loss due to the repetitiveness and the discomfort. You’ll get into the habit of constantly turning your head to glance at whatever watch, since your practice routine becomes your all and everything.

Therefore it makes me very happy to feel that my effort is being appreciated.

I’m very happy to see the numbers on my Bach video as well. There will be more.

On the 10th of August I will be singing classical music and do my 1st opera concert. It will be a mix of religious and secular music and is a fundraiser that I’ve initiated for my favourite church. As I’ve mentioned before; there is a challenge in keeping these places of worship around, due to low attendance numbers, no government support and a general lack of interest.

It is a pity, because it is part of England’s cultural and spiritual heritage.

I’m looking forward to filling the church with song and I hope that my readership will join me.

If you like what I do then make sure that you check out my books and my other music releases.Β 

If you are keen on music lessons, then I currently offer those over Skype only. They can be purchased either here or here.
