About Me

I focus is on Classical and Early music, but I also perform and teach other types of music like jazz, folklore, and free improvised music among others. I enjoy collaborating with professionals from other performing arts (movement, storytelling...) and I like to include them in my work.

Teaching music is something that inspires me, not only something I do as a job. For me, helping someone discover their voice and musicality is one of the most fulfilling activities.

Education

-Bachelor in recorder with Erik Bosgraaf (Conservatorium van Amsterdam)
-Master in voice with Xenia Meijer (current study in Conservatorium van Amsterdam)
-Masterclasses with teachers like Michael Schneider, David Antich, Rebecca Steward, Malik Mezzadri, Harmen Fraanje, Margreet Honig, Adrián van der Spoel and more.

Drums & Rhythm Lessons - in a͓̽m͓̽s͓̽t͓̽e͓̽r͓̽d͓̽a͓̽m͓̽
My approach to teaching drums is focused on developing a strong understanding of rhythm in general and applying it on the drum set. I will customise my teaching approach to your needs, depending on the level of your playing and your musical desires. I'll give my best in each lesson to guide you step-by-step into becoming a better musician/drummer. You can learn about: - Polyrhythms - Groove - Technique - Macro & micro timing - Drum sounds for different genres/applications - Controlling dynamics between different limbs - Rhythm singing (konnakol) - Reading complex musical notations - Composing mathematically harmonious/inharmonious rhythms And much more... Starting from beginner, up to experienced drummers. I'm also giving rhythm lessons to non-drummers, just to anyone interested in getting to know more about the rhythmical concepts of South India - the most advanced rhythmic system on planet Earth!
