I am the youngest of four children and was born in May 1997 and grew up in Wolseley. I started playing music in 2006 and play a number of instruments. I am a learner at the Wolseley Sekonder School and am a respectable person who loves to work with people.
I am the leader of the amaWolseley marimba band and if feels like we are one big family. This band has brought peace and love in my heart. My dream is to travel all over the world with this band, carrying the name of Wolseley far and wide and to be an inspiration to my community.
I am very grateful to my band members and to Paul and Peppi Stanford who have become like parents to me.
I live in the small town of Wolseley and am a fun loving person who loves to laugh. I like challenges This instrument has changed my life. From the day I started playing the marimbas, I feel like making music. When I am performing in the band, I feel like I am on top of the world.
My dream is to visit Australia as I am also a big fan of their rugby players.
I am a disciplined person and live in the Boland town of Wolseley.
When I play in the marimba band, I forget about my personal problems. I feel like I have begun a new life and gained a new family with my fellow marimba players. Since starting to play the marimbas, I have developed a passion for this instrument. I now experiment with a few instruments.
I see myself as a dependable and respectable person.
My favorite colours are blue, green and purple and my best food is pasta. I love to play soccer with my friends.
My favorite music are love songs, R&B and house music and my hero is Emo Adams. He inspires me a lot.
I am a learner at Wolseley Sekondere School and am very keen on my sport. My main interests are rugby and cricket. In ten years I see myself as a sound engineer if God spares me.
I live in Wolseley and it is here that I found my feet. amaWolseley Marimba band has changed my life and my school work. I have always been interested in music and find I have talent and would like to teach people to play instruments.
My dream with amaWolseley Marimba band is to travel overseas one day to New Zealand and see the rugby and meet the All Black team.
The band members are an inspiration to me. Many have personal problems but when they come to practice, these are all left at home. Some were my friends, but others I hardly knew at all but we have become a tight group. I will grab any opportunity given me with both hands.
Thank you to the whole team for your love and joy shared.
I come from an average home and we are neither rich nor poor. I have one sister and one brother and my mother is a single parent.
I never had things that my friends had and at the age of 8 my Grandfather died. He was like a father to me and cared for me. I now live happily with my brother, sister and mother in the township near Wolseley.
The marimbas have a good influence on my life. It keeps me from doing the wrong stuff that I was involved with prior to knowing what a marimba was. I now know what it is and it has brought a big change to my life and I will never pass over any opportunity.
