I wish to welcome you to my website, which will give you a look into my life as a musician, recording engineer and a teacher. First of all I am a musician above all. I love my guitar and to compose and create music. I am a sound engineer as well, specializing in musical Artists. As you well know, the technical side has become of major importance to the modern artist. I have worked with professionals from the Metropolitan Opera, La Scala, Covent Garden, Opera Comique, young artists from The Juilliard school and the Manhattan School, broadway musicians, chamber music artists from England , Germany and France. Also in another genre my experience with Jazz, Blues and Rock musicians from France, Austria and Great Britain round out my musical experience.
The last couple of years I have been teaching part-time folk and country guitar to students in Paris and New York and they have been a great influence on my playing and they keep me up to date with the music of today. I have to give them credit for what I am today because they teach me..... how to teach them.
I still study the voice as well, which is such a beautiful instrument but so difficult to understand, as it is your body and soul you are dealing with, and as we all know, it changes every day. I'm lucky to have a great teacher, and to have seen and recorded one of the best singers in the world.
My life had its ups and downs(but who has not, right?) , and I finally took the step to start recording my Dutch songs, and to bring them out. I have so many things to tell and for me its like every song is a little therapy. They come all from my heart, and its so good to empty your heart!!
