Teacher

I’ve been playing sax for more than 37 years now and at the same time I’ve been teaching more than 30 years. Since the age of 16 I’ve been a saxophone teacher and bandcoach. I worked at several institutes and worked individually, with small groups, complete bands even up to BigBand and full orchestra. I’ve worked at the SKVR in Rotterdam for 13 years, but had to quit in 2013 because of my demanding job at the conservatory and my performing career. Now I still teach a small group of individual students, mostly musicians who already can play a little and want to explore the next level. I can help you with your reading skills, technique, developing sound, improvisation, timing, recording, producing, arranging, building repertoire and so on. Every student has it own needs, but at the same time a lot of skills are the same for everybody. Together we’ll make a program completely individually developed for your own personal interests and needs. I teach in my recording studio in leiden (www.Mufis.nl) or if you prefer at your own location (but then I charge travel costs and the extra traveling time). I prefer individual lessons of 60 minutes, but everything is negotiable. I really enjoy teaching and love to work with enthusiastic musicians who really want to work hard. If you would like to find out what your next level could be, feel free to contact me for further information.
