Since 2001 I have been teacher for jazz saxophone and ensemble/combo “Hochschule für Tanz und Musik Köln” and conservatory Maastricht (nl). Preparing main subject students for their professional life after graduating is a wonderful assignment for me.
Next to giving information to students and young professionals teaching on tat level is as well a great source of inspiration and ideas in the field of music and the field of conception and didactical Ideas.
Every student is an different person with individual needs and interests. Educating young artists means to me to company them individually on a journey into taste, profound knowledge and own expression.
I love doing this and enjoy a generally very intense time to share, as students and me myself take and give at the same time.
If you have any questions concerning studying jazz here or there, about applications for jazz studies, content of jazz education, about the profession “jazz musician” etc.. please don’t hesitate to contact me, I’d be glad to answer your questions asap.
