Hello music enthusiast,
are you looking for a teacher to guide you into the magical world of music?
You are interested in composition, film music, dramaturgy, recording live music and its productional side? You want to skill your ear with special ear training or just getting prepared for the entrance exam of a music University?
My name is Jan Willem, I am a german-dutch (film) composer, producer, and musician and living and working in London. Furthermore, I am working as film music ambassador and teacher on media congresses and film music festivals.
I am a trained composer/conductor and studied film composition at the Zurich University Of Arts (BA) and at the Royal College Of Music in London (MA). Besides many workshops and masterclasses, I consolidate my musical experience with collaborations with ensembles like the City Of Prague Orchestra, the Macedonian Radio Symphonic Orchestra, State Orchestra Halle, or other musicians in or out of the UK.
In 2016, my work was awarded the "German Film Music Award".
Nevertheless, my musical education is not just focused on neo-romantic composition and hybrid film music but goes from the early beginnings of church music to Jazz and Blues music.
Why taking music lessons with me?
In my lessons, you have the possibility to learn all steps of music creation (from music history and theory to dramaturgy and conception, from composition/arrangement and producing "mock-ups" to performance and production).
If you are interested in recording live music,
I give you the possibility to assist at my recording sessions and maybe also to support me with your new knowledge.
I am a young, dynamic composer who is interested in getting in contact with other music lovers and professionals not only to expand your horizon but maybe also to expand my own. Music is subjective! This means I am interested in your way of thinking to develop your musical language.
I am looking forward to getting in contact with you.
Please don´t hesitate to ask if there are any questions and have a look at my homepage for more information:
