I was born in Durban – GO SHARKS!!! – but we moved to the Free State where I started my my school career.  I’ve always loved music and started singing in the school choir in grade 1.   I loved playing in the Orff band and I remember bugging the music teacher very often to see if there’s an opening on his timetable for me!  I (eventually!) started piano lessons.UJ (18)  In grade 7, I got my first guitar and started learning to play guitar as well.

Throughout my school career I continued with the singing, piano and guitar.  By this time we were living in Port Elizabeth where I also joined the Youth Choir, being one of the soloists.  While studying, I was a member of the University Choir and also had a lovely time as solo artist in and around Port Elizabeth.

I obtained my BMus Hons degree at Tukkies and am currently teaching music at Hoerskool Randburg Magneetskool vir Musiek.  My youngest student is 4 years old and the oldest in matric.

I love listening to all kinds of music: jazz, blues, classical music.  Any good music, really.

I met Alvain when i heard him singing in 1997 – his easy, beautiful voice caught my attention!  We did a musical theatre piece together in the early 2000′s which we performed in theatres in Johannesburg and Pretoria.  I joined his band in 2011.
