- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes. Music is a lifelong endeavor as a professional. You never stop learning and never stop growing and developing. Nowadays there are so many avenues available for continuing education and development. The internet is a wonderful resource of videos, forums and how to music sites. There are also so many songs (especially the classics) that teach you about music.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
It all started with my late dad Dr Stanley Lowe who had a DA (Doctorate of the Arts). I always loved to sing from a child and as I grew older he tutored me in voice and later guitar. Bass guitar was the instrument I initially wanted to learn which I did later on. My father encouraged me to major in music education even though I was only interested in being a performing artist. I spent approximately 12 years learning the techniques of teaching under the tutelage of my father during my early years of life. He had a succesful music and voice teaching business for over 40 years. Years later while living in Africa I started teaching at the request of others and found that I loved doing it.
