PERCUSSIONIST

I studied (classical) percussion at the Conservatory of Amsterdam from 1996 to 2002. Already during my studies I started playing in symphony orchestras and chamber music ensembles throughout the Netherlands and abroad. After my studies I slowly shifted my focus towards performing in theater and dance productions, as a soloist and in playing in bands. I worked with many composers and I commissioned new works by a.o. M. Heeneman, N. Sato, M. Knigge, G. Vleggaar, W. Bulsink, T. Myrmel, H. Vega and R. Roelofsen.

I currently divide my time between composing and performing.
