Both Boukje and Luca are qualified music teachers. They also have experience with teaching children, adults, individuals and groups. Currently, they’re in the second year of the Master Program at the Royal Conservatoire in Den Haag. In this section, they introduce themselves.
Luca started to play the piano at the age of 8 years old, showing also an early interest in writing his own music. During his course of studying he has followed lessons with jazz and classical teachers from all around the world, inspired by their musical point of view which he transmitted to his students in his prior teaching experiences in Italy and in Spain. Luca, while trying to learn Dutch at his own best, is able to give lessons in English, Italian and Spanish.
“The teacher is the person that gives the student the tools to make himself/herself independent in a way that he/she is able to understand the music in the truest form.”
Boukje started singing when she was two years old. After playing piano and cello she started with vocal lessons and later decided that she wanted to be a singer. She loves to sing Bach and American song repertoire. In her Bachelor’s she did an internship in which she had to give vocal lessons and she liked it so much that she wants to continue to teach.
“To make music with your voice is something beautiful and also personal because every voice has its own sound and colour. With all my vocal teachers I learned different ways to find my own sound in a way that feels free. Now I like to help other people with finding their own sound.”
