Every person is different. Therefore I adapt the piano education to the needs and abilties of the student. My program of education garantees a balanced technical and musical development. During my class I tune the motivation and the performance. First I work on the motivation. If the motivation is fine, I help the student to develop the skills from their own enterprise. The student tries to solve his task by himself and I adjust only when it is necessary to finish the task. This means that I can garantee everyone with a good motivation a maximum improvement.
Because of my psychological background and experience I can can go along with everyones personal development. I have teaching experience with very young children from the age of 5, teenagers and adults up to 80 years. Children with autism, ADHD and gifted children will get a good musical development with me.Piano lessons are good for the development of the brain. It improves the attention, memory, motor skills and cognitive skills at school. And piano lesson provides a better development of the personality.

For every student who wants to know what his / her pianist and music theoretical level is, there is the opportunity to participate in the EPTA National Graduation Piano (LGP). EPTA Nederland is an association of professional piano teachers and pianists, with the aim of increasing the level of piano and piano education. The requirements of an EPTA degree exam, unlike the degree exams of local music schools, are the same throughout the country. This has finally been a standard so that everyone in the Netherlands at the same grade has the same level.
If the student wants to do an LGP exam, he will be prepared for both the practical and the theoretical part of the exam.
