Besides composing, my great passion is teaching composition and composition techniques at the Fontys Conservatory (AMPA) in Tilburg. Since 2008 I have coached gifted young composers in finding and developing their own musical voice.
The musical style of these young composers varies enormously: you can hear influences of ethnic music, romantic classical music, extended tonality, music of the avant-garde, minimal music, film music, afro-cuban rhythm, jazz, pop music etc.
I am very happy with this, because music is not about style, it is about quality and a proper balance between craftsmanship and musical expression.
Some of these students and alumni have their own websites or their music can be listened to via soundcloud. In alphabetical order:
