Violin lessons

Besides performing, I am a passionate violin teacher. I’ve been teaching for about twenty years, ever since I started my studies at the conservatory.

I teach at my own practice in the centre of Den Bosch as well as at the Regionale Muziekschool ’s-Hertogenbosch, location Perron 3 (Rosmalen). Students of any age and level are most welcome.

“During my lessons, I love to pass on my love for the violin to my students. The student is central in this process. I aim to cultivate a relaxed and pleasant environment where my students can develop as optimally as possible.”

Nothing beats the fun of making music together! Therefore I organise several collaborative projects each year during which students can study and perform together. In addition there are student concerts, where students have the opportunity to perform pieces with piano or violin accompaniment. 

My students won prices at the Prinses Christina Junior Concours, the Maassluise Muziekweek and the Concertgebouw Talentenjacht and several students have continued their studies at conservatories.

Instrument

It’s important to have access to a good instrument in order to optimise your musical development. I recommend renting an instrument from a recognized violin maker, such as Paardekooper in Den Bosch. This way you are assured of a suitable and high-quality violin, that you can exchange for a larger size over time. When a student is ready to play a whole violin, this can be a good moment to purchase their own violin and bow. Please consult with me before making this decision.

Homework

Practicing at home is essential in order to learn to play the violin.
For young students it’s important that parents provide the structure at home for daily practice and to support their child. It’s not neccessary to be able to play an instrument yourself, however an enthusiastic and encouraging attitude is key. Practicing at a set time each day is often helpful.
