Schafer - Proofreader - Knysna, South Africa

Moira Schafer

Knysna, South Africa


I have been a classical musician and teacher all my working life and have worked both privately and at various schools in Cape Town and Johannesburg. I have an excellent track record in teaching of piano and singing as well as in conducting choirs and musically directing many stage productions.
In my retirement to Knysna I am still very active in teaching, conducting and directing the St George's Anglican Church choir while I play the organ. I am known for being able to multi-task!
Editing has always been my job in the family because of my eye for detail and last year I completed a proofreading and copy editing course in Cape Town with the renowned John Linnegar. This has inspired me to take up this new activity which I really enjoy. I hope to build up a small clientele to start with and see where it takes me. I will undertake any editing that involves words. I am not a numbers person and would not enjoy sorting out pages of figures.




Copy editing of dissertations, theses, articles etc. as well as proofreading of same.
