During our life we regularly come to a point where we can use a guide to move on. I can give you or your child this guide. This guide is provided by coaching or piano coaching.

Piano Coaching: The new way of developing with music.

Everyone who contact me has a specific reason for this. Some come for piano lessons. Others come directly for coaching. I often experience that people sign up for piano lessons and that during the piano lesson I work on various aspects that you might as well place in coaching. Examples of this are:

  • dealing with feedback
  • learn to listen to yourself
  • find emotional balance
  • learning to plan
  • take on challenges
  • to communicate
  • to overcome fears
  • gain confidence
  • Make choices
  • personal growth

This is because I look at everyone’s needs and wants. If I have a clear picture of this, then I will cover this during the piano sessions. This is also one of the reasons why I do not focus directly on the performance or study results. Every time someone comes to me, the state of the other is the basis for me and it is my job to have something to give the other person at the end of a session. This can be reflected in an improved piano playing, but also in one of the aspects mentioned above.


Whoever comes to me for coaching is guided by me to take up his challenge. I do this from positive psychology and solution-oriented thinking.

Below you can read more information about the different forms of guidance I offer.

“We ended up with Roger through a social worker because our son showed oppositional behavior. Our whole family suffered a lot from his behavior and we were distraught. Roger accompanied our son with this problem. He also spoke to our family members several times. Roger helped us find solutions and worked to improve communication within our family After half a year our son’s behavior is clearly better and there is more harmony in our family Through the conversations with Roger my wife and I became aware that the cause of our son’s oppositional behavior is not only his, but that we also had a clear part in this.”

“From birth we have had trouble connecting with our son J. He didn’t respond much to us. It seemed as if he was in his own world. Because our daughter had piano lessons with Roger and we heard that he is a psychologist, we asked if he could mean something to J, then 3 years old. Maybe something with music and coaching. Roger accepted this challenge and worked with him for 2 years. After a few months Roger managed to get in touch with J. From that moment on it became contact gradually improved and he was even able to make music with him. Eventually, during a student concert, J played a piano piece he had studied with Roger a year later. Later, a psychiatrist determined that J is autistic.”

“Roger was initially my piano teacher with whom I had a pleasant“ click. ”Due to a shared interest in people, we sometimes had conversations about other things than about piano lessons.
After my mother died suddenly, I was emotionally unable to play the piano; My world was turned upside down emotionally. Roger offered coaching in grieving to regain balance and peace. Our conversations have a sounding board approach in which Roger also opens up. Due to his empathetic and warm attitude and good listening and perception skills, I am now slowly able to cope with my drastically changed life after more than half a year. The handles from our conversations based on equivalence prove to be a great help in the grieving process and I feel better able to nuance.
Roger doesn’t talk to you. He listens, also to what is not said, from the starting point: respect for, warmth and preservation of your self-worth. You’re okay, maybe you can make things a little less difficult for yourself. ”
