Cecelia Manyama (33) born and raised in Soweto.
I started playing the violin at the age of 10 in Diepkloof at the Buskaid Soweto Strings Project. In 2008 I was awarded my DipABRSM,followed by my LRSM (Licentiate of the royal schools of music UK) as a violinist at Buskaid. I am particularly skilled at running a violin class and individual lessons. As a teacher,I am working with different schools including Saheti Greek private school and National school of the arts (NSA) .
I also freelance with various orchestras in Johannesburg,including the Johannesburg Festival Orchestra. My talents also include singing. I am an alto singer for the Soweto Gospel Choir.
Music is my life. If you don’t find me playing and teaching the violin,you will definitely find me singing.
