    About Me

    Hi, I graduated as a Master of Music at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague and I have several projects as a composer/arranger and bass player.
    Besides an active life as a musician, I teach piano, bass guitar/contrabass, composition and music theory to students of all levels and ages.

    I made arrangements/compositions for, among others, the Fuse Ensemble (NL) and I play live with my Jazz Quintet, where I play bass and compose for this band, with which i recorded a CD, ‘Vortex’.
    Those and other and new musical experiences inspire me to continue for further development as musician and to pass on my musical knowledge to others.

Feel free to contact me if you are interested in learning how to play the piano or you are curious about music theory or how to make your own music. The structure and the material of the lesson are based on your skills, preferences and wishes, but also according to established piano methods and further music bibliography. I am always keen on transcribing some of my pupils' favourite pieces on piano according to their skills, something that often is very useful and fruitful for their progress.

    Music Composition, Music Theory, Music introduction, etc., for children and adults. Any level from beginner to advanced.
    After studying two Bachelor and one Master degrees in Composition, I am now developing my career as a freelance composer. I offer lessons of composition (for any style and purpose), music theory (like writing, reading, theory, harmony, analysis, counterpoint, orchestration, etc), in a dynamic and prosperous environment. Being involved in music education since I was 6 years old -and starting to study in a conservatory at age of 8- has given me enough experience to understand the needs of a music apprentice. In my lessons, the student's needs guide the approach to the subject. Composing must be a fun, enjoyable and fructiferous process. The theory or composition lesson can be based on a historical and theoretical foundation, but without forgetting that music is a wonderfully pleasurable form of expression and should be enjoyed with fun and sensitivity. However, discipline (without pressure) can not be forgotten. If you are looking to explore the music creation (of any style of music), to learn the music theory, or need guidance with any subject of music training, please, do not hesitate in contacting me. I will be glad to help you.

    Piano Lessons for Beginners and Amateurs. Classical, Pop, Improvisation and Own Compositions.
    I am a professional classical pianist, accompanist, singer, and composer with a Bachelor's Degree from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and a Master's Degree at the Royal Conservatorium in the Hague. For 6 years now, I have been teaching students of all levels between 5 and 60 years old. Lessons are based on your level, interests, and goals. Together we can find out if you are keener on classical repertoire, or if you want to play your favorite pop-music, some beautiful soundtrack from a movie you like or compose/improvise new pieces. With my experience in teaching diverse genres, I will help you explore the music that you like. The central pillars I always work with are technique and creativity, which are much more connected than you would expect! While we advance, I also introduce the basics (or more deeply, if you are interested) of music theory to learn to communicate with each other in musical terms (chords, keys, score reading, etc.). And above all, the goal is to enjoy and have fun!
