I center my activities around playing my own music as well as in other bands, performing in various venues and festivals around the Netherlands and Europe.
I have a Bachelor Degree and Master Degree in Jazz piano performance from the Conservatory of Amsterdam.
Besides performing I have been teaching students of all age groups since 2014. I teach different styles and levels both in music schools and privately.
Having loved and studied music all my life, I appreciate passing on the knowledge and passion I have for music to my students.
During a time when we get most of our knowledge from the internet, I have found that face-to-face lessons are a far more efficient and valuable way to study music.
A lesson isn’t only a transaction of information, but also a source of inspiration and joy.
I see my role as helping the students by giving them tools to digest and organise information as well as giving them autonomy to continue the studying process by themselves.
Some of the subjects we could cover during the lessons:
• Piano/keyboards in any style (pop, rock, classical, jazz,…)
• Music theory
• Modern harmony
• Ear training
• Producing (Logic, Pro Tools)
• Digital music notation (Sibelius)
• Band coaching
• Practice routine
• Preparation for entrance exams for Jazz and Pop Conservatories
In our first trial lesson we will talk about your musical interests, background and goals, in order to take acton in designing a lesson that will be tailor-made for your specific needs.
Our lessons could take place at my home but I am also open for the possibility of teaching in the student’s home if that is more convenient.
I look forward to meet you and work with you soon!
