What started out as a project to help violin students practise for their music exams, evolved into a recording project and subsequently has received a SAMA Nomination (South African Music Award). So delighted to find that my Classical album ‘Vignettes for Violin’ released in 2019 has been nominated for an award under the Classical Music category.

The #SAMA26 awards will be held virtually mymuze.com, and Mzansi Magic, 3-7 August @ 9:30pm to catch the winners and all the industry buzz!

Special thanks goes to Rory Gaddin who engineered the recording, piano whizz Ashlea Martin who accompanied me on all the pieces and master of mastering Keith Forsythe who added the finishing touches to the album.

What to do when lock-down means no more performing?

As lock-down approaches as a result of the Covid-19 virus, many musicians have found that bookings and events of all kinds have had to cancel or postpone, leaving musicians with a lot more time on their hands and likely less money in their pockets as a result.

In the 21-day lock-down period, I’ve made a list of productive music-related activities to keep ‘in the game’ as well as retain a sense of sanity. One such activity is to record and work on some new music material and videos. Such activities are time-consuming, perfect for long stretches of time shut in at home!
