Charlene – Piano

I believe that music is part of our being, a beautiful gift from God. It communicates across cultures and expresses a vast array of emotions. It can be one of the most powerful tools to edify body, soul and spirit.

I started with piano lessons at the age of 5. Piano was one of my high school subjects and I completed UNISA and Royal Schools Gr 8 Piano and Music Theory exams.

After completing high school, I chose a career in fashion and specifically Haute Couture, which allowed me to run my own event wear business. 

Through my continuous involvement in music, it eventually filtered down to my two daughters were part of the Stellenberg Girls Choir. I am also currently part of my local church band through keys and vocals, where we also receive excellent musical impartation from the Pelser family.

I joined M&M in 2013 and never looked back. My classical piano background is helpful in training musicians to read music properly and to understand the theoretical aspects. My experience in church, has allowed me to bring a band dynamic into my tutoring which assists greatly to equip and inspire other piano players.
