Kerryn completed her B.Mus degree in violin performance Cum Laude at the University of Stellenbosch in 1998. During this time she co-led the Stellenbosch Symphony Orchestra that travelled around Europe, was a member of the South African National Youth Orchestra and was an ad hoc musician for the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra.

Her passion for using music to connect, heal and inspire people of all shapes and sizes led her to do her postgraduate studies in Music Therapy at the University of Pretoria. In 2000 she graduated Cum Laude amongst the very first group of South African Music Therapy graduates. In 2002 she co-founded the Music Therapy Community Clinic (MTCC), a non-profit organization that aims to provide free music therapy services to disadvantaged communities in the greater Cape Town area.

Kerryn can´t remember life without music. She´s played in a variety of music ensembles and orchestras and has taught violin to both young and old. Her favourite song to sing in the shower is "Raindrops keep falling on my head", although except for the first line, she doesn´t really know the words. When Kerryn is not making music, she´s being entertained by the antics of her 2-year old son and she has realized how much ´musicking´ and improvisation is involved in mothering. She loves doing anything creative as well as taking time out to take leisurely strolls in and around Cape Town.

(If she were stuck on a desert island, unlike Peter she wouldn´t take Cd´s at all, she´d sing all day and be really grateful that she had nothing better to do than stare at the stars and float in the sea!!!)
