Music

#Funfact: The genres I grew up listening to and feel the most connected to are Rock and Gospel.

At the start of my music career, I was a performer. This allows me to visualize how composed music can be performed. This gives me the upper hand as some Sound Engineers and educators in the music industry are not performers. I also trained as a jazz pianist.


With my skills and expertise I can help you find your voice as an artist, whether this is for your debut EP, an album or a single. I do this through brainstorming sessions where I map out your vision for your target audience. I am also able to co-produce, write lyrical content and meet other production needs.

In my experience, I was a Live Sound Engineer in training in 2008, a technical producer at the national broadcaster SABC (RBF Division) from 2010-2012, a Creative Arts teacher where I taught music to kids and teens at Connie Minchin Primary School in 2016, and an archiver and facilitator at Mzansi Poetry Academy, working as the officer of a Resource and Information Center in 2017.


In terms of educating, I lectured in the field of Sound Engineering at Damelin College (Braamfontein campus) from 2018-2020 and I was a student advisor for the Music Production and Sound Engineering course at Abbey Road Institute in Midrand from 2020 – 2022.


When it comes to sound engineering, I can help you achieve your envisioned mix for your Acapella music, singer-songwriter, and gospel pieces.

Mosadi

Composed by Lebo Poen

“Ke mosadi.
It’s how hard I love when no one is around,
It’s how hard I love when the world is cold,
It’s how hard I love when everyone else has given up.
Ke mosadi. I am woman.
It’s how hard I love lefatshe le le mo seretseng,
It’s how hard I love,
It’s what I embody,
It’s what I manifest,
It’s what I speak and confess with my tongue,
It’s how I worship,
It’s how I speak light into my life,
It’s how I love everyone around me,
It’s how I bless and not curse,
I am woman.
Mafoko aka ke lesedi,
Seriti saka se ka tlotlwa.
O mosadi.”

God and Piano (poem taken from, For the Broken Ones)
“It’s like having crushed knuckles and bruised fingertips,
Yet playing the piano is the only painless thing you encounter.”
