“I was also a lecturer of piano, keyboard studies and music history until the end of 2012. Apart from my Master’s degree­, I also hold the internationally recognised­ Performance Licentiate from Unisa [2006].

“I also hold the post of curriculum developer for the Unisa undergraduate courses in composition and music theory.” CT Filip has been a concert pianist in South Africa and abroad, with over 100 performances also performing some of his own works.
