Besides composing, my great passion is teaching composition 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.
