Carol and Karyn first met when Carol bellowed “Hello, are you Karyn, the music therapist?” at Karyn in the parking lot after a music therapy symposium at the University of Pretoria in 2009. At the time Carol was still a music therapy student and Karyn was working at the Music Therapy Community Clinic (now MusicWorks) in Cape Town.
Fast forward a year and they found themselves sharing a desk (in the tiniest office ever) and working together in some of the most under resourced communities in Cape Town.
Fast forward again, two years this time, and many interesting, challenging, musical and wonderful experiences later, they realised that they make a great team and have some pretty awesome ideas. Drumming with a Difference was born.
They continue to make a great team, probably because they are both a little quirky and are passionate about what they do.
