Hey wonderful people

 

I know I’ve neglected this part, for a long time. But I do have a lot to catch you up on.

All things violin have been amazing.

I got to be on television! I was featured on Living With Ess which is a lifestyle show by Sharon Mundia aka this is Ess! I was so excited considering I’ve been a fan FOREVER!

There was also the wonderful opportunity to play at the book launch for Amina Rabar, who is a host on the Trend and 98,4 Capital FM.

It’s been an amazing violin year so far.

I’m also super excited to announce, that I FINALLY STARTED MY YOUTUBE CHANEL.

It has been a year filled with back and forths, and if I am being all the way honest, there has been so much DOUBT. I have been so afraid of the feedback and of being perfect that I just forgot i was doing this  because I love the violin and that is it.

I’m super excited for this and I hope you all are too!

eginning.

I have attached the link to the video below,please do watch, share and subscribe too. I’m so excited and mostly nervous to be going on this journey.

 

Here is the link to the chanel.

 

Sending you all the love in the world this Easter.

Hey loves,

So I’ve never actually shared how much music changed my life and made it so much more amazing. I’m a more holistic person courtesy of the lessons I’ve learnt from playing the violin as well as through playing in various ensembles.

I’ve linked an interview I did at the bottom of this post. Hope this gives you more insight on my musical and violin journey.

Hey guys So I’ve been feeling pretty festive and figured I would switch it up this holiday. Every so often I’ll be linking you guys to a Christmas Video! I’m so excited about sharing this project because shooting it was a bunch of fun. The first Christmas Carol is Joy to the world which has honestly been a personal favorite of mine. The link to the video is here and I can’t wait to share some more of this wonderful music. Sending you all the Christmas love! K
