Looking for violin lessons that are fun? I am a friendly and experienced violin teacher with a long track record in teaching, from beginner to conservatory entrance levels.

I offer different kinds of lessons. Playing together with others is an important ingredient in all of them. Together we decide which kind fits you best.

Interested? Try out a lesson free of charge to see if we match.

Note: my classsroom is Covid compatible.




Standard: 30 minutes

Individual lessons suitable for starters.

Extended: 45 minutes

For more advanced pupils for whom 30 minutes is too short.

Duo lessons: 45 minutes

Also good for starters. You work together with someone of your own level, and playing together comes natural in this way. Also you have a longer lesson for a lower rate.

Biweekly 60 minutes

For adults who know how to practice on their own.


I follow the rate set by the KNTV, which is 44/60 minutes. I teach 40 weeks per year, following the school calendar. The easiest payment scheme is a monthly automatic transfer for 10 months; I will remind you to stop it for the summer break. Rates are 

Individual 22/lesson €88/month

Extended €33/lesson €132/month

Duo €24,50/lesson €98/month 

Biweekly 44/lesson €88/month


I teachin the afternoons of Monday, Tuesday and Friday. School holidays are free. In principle you have a fixed time slot, but if necessary we improvise. Missed a lecture? You can catch up on Saturday afternoons. In case you might want to stop: I use one month notification.


Twice a year we work towards a project day in which we play together in different settings. The day ends with a performance for friends and family in "de Eester", a nice location with piano close by my house. Participation is not compulsory but works miracles for fun and motivation. Also it prepares you for ensemble playing, and that is what playing the violin is all about.

At the end of the year I offer you the possibility to show your progress to your fans. This is also held at de Eester.

These activities are included in the normal rates. I may have to charge the public a small fee to cover extra costs.
