In 2018 I graduated cum laude as a ‘Bachelor of Music’ from the Rotterdam Music University Codarts. Specializing in teaching and coaching in my last 2 years. As a professional musician I have travelled the world to experience different kinds of music. I have played many different styles and worked in different fields such as: musicals, theatre shows, hosting workshops, teaching/coaching, studio work, commercials, writing my own book and playing/touring with different artists such as; Charmplay, Pat Smith, Splendid, Laura Overbeeke, Stef van Es, Remco Visker, Jan Rot, Tim Vantol.
I have been teaching drums and music for over 10 years. I teach private classes for beginners to intermediate and coach the more advanced muscians. I love to share my passion and knowledge with others. For me this is as good as life can be, sharing passion and inspire other people with what I love to do.
Since I was a little kid I have been into sports on a serious level. I have been climbing, bouldering and practicing martial arts for years. All sports where you have to use your mind and body at the same time. It is about timing, coordination and getting full control over your body. Its the same with playing music, a perfect combination! I love movement and love to inspire people with all the experience I have gathered from the different sports. Over the years I noticed all the similarities between my practices in music and movement. Now I have been practicing yoga for two years and found that my love for movement, with my history of different disciplines, falls right into place. Since then I have been putting all this information together with Joy in a few different classes. The perfect combination of music and movement!
