Coordinator: Fie Schouten
I am (bass) clarinetist and professor bass clarinet at the Prince Claus Conservatoire. I studied for 2 years Study of human movement at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam and I followed a lot of lessons (group and private) with Irthe Engelhard at the Conservatoire of Amsterdam during my (bass) clarinet-studies there.
