About Nik12
Joined November 2014
Hello & Welcome

My name is Nik, I´m from Austria. My two sons, my wife and me, we live in the beautiful little town Krems, at the river Danube, 75km from Vienna. Surrounded by wonderful landscapes with lots of castles among vineyards.

Drumming and Singing with severe handicapped children and adults provides lots of joy and fun, and I have got enough time to spend with my boys, while my wife is off to work.

Being part of a great community here at WA doesn´t only mean to have a website built and looking after great rankings. It also helps me to become more focused on the subjects and things I REALLY am passionate about in daily life.

I´ve gone premium yearly and I´m looking forward to a magnificent journey of great inspiration and learning from each other.


Thanks and huge success to all of us!

Hi Nik. Left a comment on your site. I think you targeted your "drum with kids" keyword at the beginning, but maybe went another direction when you went into the piano paragraph. (just my opinion) I do like your nice clean website, it is easily navigable, which is great! :)

Hello Nik,

I am very grateful that you found me and I am following you back now. I see from your profile that you are working through music with severly handicapped children.

I have read some about this and my grandson, after a head injury, was benefited from music therapy. I expect your heart is big and full of good things with the work you are doing.

As you have only barely begun your journey here, as some may have already told you, take time to work methodically through the lessons, don't skip the tasks and you are going to be surprised what you will create in a relatively short time.

And so...I look forward then to what you will creatively bubble to the surface.

Linda

You could say that, we were camping next to the Traisen, when he flooded in the middle of the night, we had to flee for the water, some caravans where empty, they stayed behind in about 0.75 cm water

Hi Nik thanks for the follow. Hey that awesome picture of that room with all those (African/ Indian? and western) instruments reminds me of an old friend of mine who's room used to look much like that but less fresh and clean :). I shared a house with him, his room was right under mine and sometimes I would hear him playing Tabla or Sitar or African hand-harp in the middle of the night.. I was like a free=trough the floor- private concert, good memories..
Is that inside your family house? I bet you all have a great time together, awesome! All the best of luck on here to you!

Cool! I can imagine what those friends look like, like a bunch of hairy, dressed in batik and DIY knitted sweaters folks :) with goat wool socks or bare feet ;) Or at least that's what most of my old friends who where into the cultural music looked like. It would be funny if they all wear 3 piece suits and ties though! All the best!

Hello Marcus,

thanx for your invitation to ask if I need help.

I just thought: Who is the ideal costumer for my offer, which is inspiring people to play drums and relevant ethnic instruments. Its meant as a healing aspect for relaxing, and further, my help for development in Rhythm and Sound. (Video-lessons, Audio CDs for drumming together,...)

I discovered, that there are mostly women in my drum circles in austria, at the age of 40 to 55. Women are generally more open for inner space & spiritual things. Further drumming can help people get out of depression, cause movement and joy of drumming can be great alternative healing methods.

How do you see my ideal costumers profile? Any ideas?
Ok, I didn´t drop just one line, they are some more...

greetings from austria

Hey Nikolaus,

Great insight into your niche.

I think right there you have highlighted a few key points...mostly middle aged women, can help with depression and generally helps to create more inner peace.

I think this kind of therapy that would most likely suit people of mid-age onwards because this is a period of life where most have greater life experiences, have experienced more trauma and are possibly looking for an alternative therapy.

Not saying the younger generation wouldn't appreciate it but I think that specific life events would have to take place for them to consider and accept the benefits.

I hope this gives you some direction, Nikolaus, and I think you have huge potential here! I'll also throw something in from personal experience and that would be parents who have children with conditions or illnesses that might benefit. This type of alternative therapy is growing in popularity here in the UK, especially with autism which covers a HUGE range of conditions associated with the brain/mind.

Those are my thoughts for now...I hope they have been of some help :-)

All the best for now...

Marcus
