About Svetlana

Svetlana Ivanova is the director of this music school and brings the love of music and song to our space. The following music lessons are available: Singing, violin, saxophone, clarinet and more. 

Ms Svetlana Ivanova was born in Sofia, Bulgaria, where she attended musical education from a very early age. She completed her high school education at the music high-school
“L. Pipkov”, specializing in classic piano and then studied at the Music Academy
“P. Vladigerov” in Sofia, where she received a diploma in jazz-piano and classic-singing.
She continued her professional education as opera singer at the Vienna Conservatory for Music & Drama and graduated with excellence in Opera Repertoire. She worked with great sopranos e.g. Raina Michailova, Iliana Cotrubas, Mimi Coertze, Raina Kabaivanska, Maia-Sunara Biankini, Mirella Freni, Christina Angelakova.

She participated in a series of International Vocal and Opera Competitions in Johannesburg (RSA), Vienna (Austria), Dresden (Germany) and Rieti (Italy) and many others. She dedicated 15 years of her professional life as pianist for Eurythmy to the “Bildungsstaette für Eurythmy”, (University for Eurythmy) in Vienna, Austria, the “Kairos Company” and the Waldorf Schools.

Svetlana performed with famous Vienna conductors on various stages and theaters. She participated in Music Festivals in Switzerland, France, Italy, Greece and Japan, conducted by famous conductors Lord Jehudi Menuhin, Claudio Abbado and Mariss Jansons. She was accredited as a Professor of Opera Singing at the music Faculty of Weifang-Shandong University, China which is in partnership with the Vienna Conservatory. Her musical qualification was accredited by the Austrian Ministry of Art and Culture, where she guided many music workshops. Event management and organisation of various music festivals in Europe and Canada is part of her musical background. Svetlana visited South Africa many times as her brother, Ivo Ivanov is the first violinist at the Johannesburg Philharmonic in Johannesburg where he lives with his family for many years. She decided to move to South Africa, as she saw a huge challenge as a teacher and coach in her field as singer and pianist and a big need for good teachers in this country. She obtained her permanent residence status in 2013 and has been working as a part time teacher at the Waldorf School in Stellenbosch.

She has founded Svetlana’s Sun Light Music Studio in February 2014 with educational programs in Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Paarl, using the Examination of the Royal School of Music, London. The Sun Light Concert series offered various very successful concerts at The Shed on the Spier Wine Estate.
