Biography: I am a music teacher by origin. I have a National Diploma in Vocal Arts Pedagogy, Bachelors in Music and Higher Certificate in Financial planning. I opened my music school in 2010 and have always been inspired by all forms of education. I specialized in early childhood education through my music studies and took psychology and music therapy as extra modules. My music school is called Con Brio School of Music and is named Con Brio as it means with enthusiasm. I believe that everything should be done with enthusiasm. We learn through doing and having fun. I want to inspire young minds to be hungry for knowledge. I am excited to be part of the STEM lockdown education team, because I get to give back to little ones, and show them that learning can be fun. During this tough time, I would like to be a voice of hope.
