Other teaching activities

In the past I was teaching mathematics to first year students at univerity, I gave harmony lessons and music history in a music academy, and private dutch language lessons. At this moment my teaching activity concerns music, and especially cello playing. Sharing music with an audience is fundamental for a musician but I need also to share my musical experiences through teaching. The opportunity to work with children, youngsters and adults of all ages is very enriching in a humanitarian point of view. Music is contact and communication with yourself and with others. Helping somebody to develop this language with no words is a particular way to go. Another project that gave me a lot of satisfaction was a series of lectures in a library to explore for the public the CD-collection in the form of 90 minutes presentations. Very different were the 58 cello introductions I gave in primary schools in 2003! Two thousand five hundred children aged between 6 and 11 listened in groups of more or less 25 listened to the prelude of the Second Suite of Bach... An amazing experience!

Lectures

Speaking about music, developing a lecture, giving an introduction to a concert are part of my vision of being a musician.
