At age 5, I was learning to jive to the Jive Bunny or Waltz with my grandfather and a lifelong love for music was nurtured at an early age. After school I went on to study and completed a Master’s Degree in Psychology and worked for many years in various corporate organisations both locally and abroad.
After my daughter was born, I decided that I had had enough of corporate and decided to pursue a career in music and movement as I had enrolled my daughter in a music program at 8 months old and was amazed at the developmental benefits as well as the special time together in class. I have NEVER looked back!
I am privileged to teach special needs children and am constantly humbled and amazed at their ability to teach me about life and unconditional love. I am also deeply moved by their progress and what they have achieved in my classes. I am grateful every day to have found my passion in life and to bring so much love and learning to so many children every single day.
My job is to sing and play and there can be nothing better than that!
My love of music did not go away and when I had the opportunity to work with small children through music, it was a perfect fit. It is an immense privilege that I now am able to share this love of mine and teach children to appreciate all kinds of music. Teaching young children about life through music and movement is my passion. I have two children myself, and seeing the big influence music has in their lives just enhances this passion. I love going to classes every day and get rewarded with warm smiles and happy faces.
The children learn so much through music and by being part of Music Box. It is a life changing experience.

I have very musical parents who play guitar and piano and there was always music in my household and they have truly shaped my passion for teaching children the love I found with music. In school I was involved in drama and the choir and later I learnt to play the piano (Mommy taught me everything I know!).
Owning a business where you get to “play” all day is a dream come true. There is nothing more gratifying than being part of a child’s development. There is no sound like a child’s laughter and no greater gift than a happy human being. The rewards of endless cuddles and utter appreciation are truly a blessing.
I look forward to many more years of sharing love and music with the stars of our future.
