Personal Description:

I am an internationally performing professional clarinet-, bass clarinet-, and saxophonist, playing a wide range of styles. I perform classical, jazz, folk/world music, and pop in a variety of different ensembles and bands, and can teach in all these styles as well, including improvisation and klezmer/gypsy/Balkan music. As a bass clarinet specialist, I have been recognized by some of the great players of our time and regularly perform around the world.

For those of an advanced level and professional-bound, I am a specialist in contemporary music and extended techniques and can teach things like slap tongues, multiphonics, quarter-tones, etc. I am also developing exciting new lessons and workshops in advanced rhythm. This new method of approaching rhythm will not only help to stabilize your own internal pulse, but will also show you techniques to understand and correctly perform complex rhythms with ease.

In addition to playing, I have also been a recording engineer and electronic musician for nearly 20 years and can teach music technology and production. I run my own small studio and have recorded many major classical and jazz ensembles and artists in the Netherlands and Europe.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching private clarinet, bass clarinet, and saxophone lessons for 15 years in the United States, Netherlands, and UK to students from ages 7-75 and at all playing levels. I have also been teaching group lessons in UK and Dutch primary schools for 3 years. In addition to instrumental lessons, I can tutor in theory, music technology, music production, and advanced rhythm.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to make music enjoyable and adapt to the student's needs. If you would like to go through the grading system, that's no problem. But if you would just like to learn to play so that you can jam with your friends, that's also fine. Lessons will be catered towards your goals and ambitions.
