I believe I am a dedicated musician and artist whose core passion is to motivate younger musicians to follow their dreams in the very difficult music industry. Besides being a musician, my skills set includes composition, arranging, lecturing, producing, songwriting, music research, global artist collaboration and more... I develop music educational material and collaborate with songwriters and musicians through facebook and other social media platforms. I am passionate about music creation, music re-creation, music performance, and music absorption. My music videos range from performances of original compositions, cover songs, original instrumental music with odd video footage to make them more engaging and music tutorials and music for exercise. I have recently completed my first Marimba Book consisting of orginal marimba music.

Music ignites my passion to continue living in a corrupt world. Music helps me cope with my Aspergers syndrome and mental health issues.
To be able to continue composing music full time from home which is my safe place, the place where my creativity is at its best!
Music education becoming the core learning area in every educational institution from Grade R to tertiary level. Every subject can be taught with music as its core value. I would open up one music academy in many locations, that will operate both on location as well as online.

The creative urge inside of me, which is influenced by my personal struggles with my mental health, and current events or circumstances that are affecting my country or world.
That life as we experience it can be overcome no matter what we are experiencing. That things are not always what they seem.
Exhilarated, energized, powerful, passionate and satisfied.
Education concerning the music industry and business. Education concerning the "sharks" that prey on musicians who are passionate and just want to create beautiful music. Warning against money-hungry producers, record labels, or artist managers who want to shipwreck innocent passionate musicians who create music because they love it.
Epic, legendary and revolutionary.
Not being heard. Creating beautiful passionate music, and not being able to make a living from it because it's not the preferred style. Feeling like I'm the only one in the world that appreciates my music. Rich Sponsors who have no music education wanting to establish music institutions or support for musicians, but have no clue on the heart of the musician. These Sponsors, expect the musician/artist to live a "normal" 8-5 office job existence plus put in overtime for free - and then manipulate them by paying them as if they were an admin clerk. This ultimately kills the creativity and passion of any musician and drives them to give up on their dreams.
Yes: I perform in the local orchestra as a pianist and lecture music at the university - educating and mentoring younger generation artists. My presence on social media is also very prolific.
Bull Dog Tenacity! The attitude of never giving up. Keep on keeping on matter what! Buring any bridges that could take you back to your normal 8-5 job experience - there is no turning back. Being single-minded and eradicating any doublemindedness form your thoughts or vocabulary.
