Philip Pringle – Director of Music, Western Province Preparatory School

‘Michael has an overwhelming desire to always extend himself as a person, a musician, and an educator. When Michael commits himself to a project, regardless of whether it is musical or personal, he will see it through to its successful conclusion.’

Dr Michael Low has been a member of the music staff at Western Province Preparatory School since September 2004. In this time he has proven to be an excellent musician and an enthusiastic music teacher. His students have flourished with his systematic teaching methods and his passionate approach. He is a kind teacher and he manages to get excellent results from his students. Michael’s students are all very fond of him and they often keep in touch with him after leaving WPPS.

Michael has an overwhelming desire to always extend himself as a person, a musician, and an educator. When Michael commits himself to a project, regardless of whether it is musical or personal, he will see it through to its successful conclusion. I have witnessed this in Michael’s sporting activities, his doctorate thesis and in numerous other personal and musical projects.

Michael has an excellent rapport with his colleagues and is much loved for his generosity of spirit and sense of humour. It is a pleasure and a privilege to have Michael in the music department and he deserves great success!
