Music is such a powerful thing and it is amazing what first creates that spark within you to create. I first got the music bug by sitting at the back of church listening to the organist playing. I was 11 years old at the time and said to myself ‘This is what I want to do’. This from someone who had never played a note or could read music.
Fast forward some years and I reached my goal of playing that organ. I am also the music director of the church choir where I play. Sadly, the organist that inspired me did not get to see me reach my goal or know that through him I caught the music bug.
Soon after learning to play I got interested in electronic music. This brought the creative side out in me. Tangerine Dream, Mike Oldfield, Jean Michel Jarre and Rick Wakeman provided me with the education of composing hypnotic and chilled electronic music. Later in my career, I received classical training up to postgraduate level and have also written a number of pieces for the choir.
