Egbert’s musical career started as a singer, his early singing teachers including Annette Essers and Jos Dingemanse, both in the Netherlands. During this period several recordings of Egbert were released, including his 2012 album ‘Golden Christmas Classics’ with maestro Hugo van Neck on the Piano. In 2014 Egbert continued his vocal studies in Scotland with Ann Lampard MBE. In 2016 his studies with Ann Lampard were rewarded with obtaining the Associate diploma of Trinity College London in Music Performance with distinction. Performance experience as a singer is broad, including solo recitals, concert appearances and roles in Opera and Oratorio.
In 2015 Egbert started studying with Gareth Green, working on the subjects Music Theory/Literacy, Composition and Piano. These studies with Gareth resulted in successfully obtaining the ABRSM grade 8 certificate in Music Theory in 2016, followed by the Associate diploma of the London College of Music in Music Literacy in 2017. Egbert actively started composing and in 2017/2018 he obtained several certificates in Composition at the London College of Music, all with distinction. In October 2018 Egbert submitted a portfolio of compositions at the London College of Music for which he was awarded the Associate diploma of the London College of Music in Composition in January 2019. In the autumn of 2020 Egbert picked up his singing again and released in December 2020 the album 'Christmas Carols', 10 Songs of Christmas from all over the world, accompanied by Dennis de Bruijn (Piano) & Rineke de Wit (Oboe & Soprano).
Teaching experience includes preparing students for ABRSM theory exams, marking past papers and workbooks.
Egbert is an enthusiastic music theory teacher and believes that being able to read the music and understand it is necessary for every musician, whether amateur or professional. Quite often students are more interested in playing their instrument than in learning theory. However, it is really rewarding to explore deeper understanding of the music one is performing and to enhance musicianship.
