I graduated from the Koninklijk Conservatorium of The Hague in 1980 and 1982 for recorder and flute. I also studied classical vocals and piano. After the Conservatory I followed more singing-lessons at private teachers. A couple of years I played in several orchestras as a freelancer. I also was a member of a recorder quartet and a flute sextet during many years.
More than 38 years I have been a private teacher as well as a teacher and Coordinator at Muziek- en Dansschool Amstelveen. My musical knowledge goes from the early 17th century till modern music. I am specialized in baroque music. I like teaching children, young adults or adults who want to learn music or those who want to play again. I can play the piano and harpsichord very well and I have much experience with playing together with my students during the lessons or at a concert.
Besides recorder- or flute-lessons I also teach beginners learning to play the piano. I give solfège-lessons if you want to study at the conservatorium. I am also very experienced in coaching ensembles or quartets. You even can study your choral vocal parts with me. Much is possible!
If you are interested I will make an appointment with you for having a tryout-lesson. Please sign up for a trial lesson on this website or give me a call.
