From the beginning of my own Conservatory education at Codarts in Rotterdam I’ve always been active as a teacher myself. Just because I find that inspiring and rewarding. Not only for the student, but also for myself.
In addition to my teaching as a main subject teacher at the Utrecht Conservatory (HKU), I give / taught Bandlessons, Methodology, Reading and Technical lessons and the ‘Business Aspects of Professional practice’.
After having given lessons to amateurs for more than 30 years, I recently stopped doing so because I started to focus more and more on giving private lessons via Skype, combined with all the wonderful application possibilities of the new media.
And of course, this is also possible at (preparatory) Conservatory level!
