About the coach and vocal improvisation

As a double bass player and singer with a jazz-education and more than 30 years experience in many different music styles, he has always had improvisational skills in music specialized in “scat” singing.

In 2010 and 2011 he came in contact with a new method for vocal improvisation through the masterclass of Rhiannon “All the way in”, a year of intensive training continued in 2014 in Hawaii. This had an enormous healing effect and changed his life in a positive way. Also Bob Stoloff gave him an enormous boost to discover the possibilities of the human voice in improvising.

These rich experiences he wants to share with you in his workshops. With all these experiences and rich influences he created his own method of teaching.
