Since i've been graduated i have done some great thing but sometimes there are concerts to play that get a special place in your heart. As well as last saturday, 26th of april

Sinds ik afgestudeerd ben heb ik al weer veel leuke dingen mogen doen, maar soms krijgt een evenemtent waar je mag spelen een speciale plek in je hart. Zo ook koningsdag, afgelopen zaterdag, 26 april.

A few weeks ago Ton Kerkhof called me if i could play at kingsday at a singingparty on the "nieuwe markt" in Kampen, Netherlands.

Of Course. I love to play. This singing concert is a new event with a band with horns and singers.

At the 2nd of July 2013 I graduated as Master Jazz Trumpet and Arranging at the ArtEZ conservatory. Therefore I wrote a master thesis which you heard about earlier, and played a final concert at Odeon Zwolle. The concert is rewarded with a big 8 which I'm really happy with. Below you will find some video's and pictures from the concert. Enjoy!

Wynton Marsalis 6It was a lot of work but i did it. The research for my master is finished. I wrote a paper in dutch titled: Wat heeft een jazztrompettist aan klassieke basistechniek?

Master-Eindexamen poster-webIt's time for the end of master. I'm organising the last stuff for the concert which represent the last two years of my master study. It will be an amazing concert.

I shall play with big band, with mostly professional musicians, some arrangements of me, Bob Mintzer, Maria Schneider and Jan Wessels. You will hear some features and solo from me and the other amazing musicians.

At 21.00 hour there is another exam of Bass player Rieks Roelfs which you can visit. It's going to be a beautifull day.

It's been quite here for some time. That's because of my new home. In the summer holiday I have got my the key of my new appartment. It's great living in my new place. A lot of time got into it to make it really my new home but I'm really happy with it.

Below some pictures.
