Personal Description:

"Ronald is polite, confident and friendly. He put me at ease and is clearly skilled. We did some fundamental technique work and talked a little at the end about creativity and songwriting. Big thumbs up!" - Dafydd, bass guitar student

"I have to say Ron is fantastic teacher. He's not only super passionate in his lessons, but extremely patient and engaging in his style of teaching. I'm currently learning Jazz piano, which is great as Ron has a deep understanding of musical theory and implements this alongside playing in his lessons. I couldn't recommend him enough to beginners, those trying to get back into playing such as myself, or players more advanced" - Joe, piano student

"Great teacher. Very knowledgeable with a good laid back style of teaching that makes lessons feel informal. Would highly recommend" - Nathan, piano student

Tutoring Experience:

Ron graduated from Utrecht Conservatoire (NL) in 2005 with an Honours degree in Jazz and Pop. Next to a flourishing career as a live- and recording musician he's always been a tutor. In the past two decades he has taught many students on bass guitar and piano, but he's also done recording and coaching projects with several bands.

Tutoring Approach:

In the current circumstances all my lessons are online. Please get in touch if you have questions about the technical side of things.

The content of my lessons is dependent on your wishes and will be tailored to your specific needs. Where necessary we'll include exercises to develop a good technique and posture and if you wish so, we can work on your abilities to read sheet music. My teaching method is chord based, which helps to give you a good understanding of how music works. That could then develop into improvisation skills, songwriting/composition and/or the ability to play songs by ear.

For bass guitar lessons I usually work on a mix of bass tabs and chord sheets. On piano I find that it works well to do a mix of sheet music and chord sheets. Around the songs we're working on, we can then include the necessary technical exercises and bits of theory to make you understand how to take the next step.

Let me know if you have any questions about the contents of your potential lessons with me and I'll be very happy to help.
