With extreme pleasure I’ve been teaching the piano for more than 35 years, of which at least 20 years to kindergarten children.
At the conservatory of Maastricht I studied with Tilly Keessen.
In 1987 was my debut with the 2nd piano-concerto of Beethoven.
In 1988 I graduated with the Teaching Certificate.
After that I continued to study piano at the conservatory of Utrecht with Alexander Warenberg and Ton Hartsuiker.
In 1990 I graduated with the Performing Soloist Certificate.
In 1992 I graduated with the extra study of Chambermusic.
During my studies I attended many masterclasses all over the world.
From 2000 I have focussed myself on the teaching of the piano to kindergarten children.
I coördinate, judge and prepare pupils for the yearly recurring piano exams of the EPTA Netherlands.
I thoroughly enjoy accompanying instrumentalists and playing in chamber-music ensembles.
Furthermore I coach chamber-music ensembles with piano.
