Snare drum playing always has been the red line and fundamental activity of my carrier.
In 1993 I graduated Cum Laude ( UM) at the Utrecht Conservatory where Johan Faber still was my teacher, mentor and coach.
From 1987-1992 I studied Orchestral Percussion, Classical Snare drum, Marimba and the Teacher degree at the Sweelinck Conservatory Amsterdam.

As a fulltime Soloist and Studio Percussionist I also worked as Substitute with many orchestra’s, percussion ensembles, accompanied national and international artists and played many Broadway musicals as The Lion King, Tarzan, The Wizz, Copacabana and Sweet Charity.

Commissioned arranging, composing for several (marching) bands and percussion ensembles for national and international productions.
As a member of the SIRD, Society of International Rudimental Drummers we share worldwide techniques and historical information of Rudimental Snare drumming. Traditional snare drum styles & techniques is our heritage to continue on high level. For me essential in Marching Bands .

Teaching students on community level, International Masterclasses for semi-professionals and professionals always has been my life work, inspiration and motivation to continue as musician. Highlights has been teaching at the National Conservatoire in Lisbon, The Royal College of Music London, Royal Northern College of Music Manchester UK and the Sweelinck Conservatorium Amsterdam and in several colleges in Asia.
