From a young age I received piano tuition from Ina Overkamp (famous at the time for her recitals worldwide as part of the Nederlands Piano Quartet. During my years at conservatorium I minored in piano where I was told I had enough talent to major in piano as well. I’ve been accompanying my students for years so they are very familiar with my playing. A few years ago I was asked if I would consider giving piano lessons to young children. After some initial doubts I acccepted the invitation, a decision I have never regretted. Since then I have also started to give piano lessons to adults. Something that I also enjoy very much is coaching pianists who want to learn the skills involved in accompanying singers or instrumentalists. Many piano teachers don't enjoy this kind of work but I do precisely because of my love for both singing and piano playing!
