Over Ken K.
Hi everyone! My name is Ken and I’m classical clarinet / bass clarinetist from Japan. I graduated for my Bachelor and Master degree at Codarts, the conservatory in Rotterdam. I think music is a special activity which brings lots of things to us. Of course, we have our own taste for it but we all enjoy music regardless of age and nationality. I even saw some animals dancing with music! For me it’s a clear sign that music is deeply connected to our nature and I found music brings lots of richness (not so much money for me though!). I feel honored and lucky that I found music in my life!
If you have never played the clarinet before, we will start from how to set up the clarinet but as soon as you play a note, you will have fun immediately! I still remember the moment of my first note and it's a great feeling! It will be a big pleasure for me to help your debut with the clarinet! I have some extra clarinets which I can rent. Please let me know if you need one!
If you are already clarinet player and need help for improvement, we can work together as well. I have a teaching qualification of music in the Netherlands and I have methods and materials to help you! In this case I'm looking for someone who is serious about his/her improvement. (it does not mean you play well! If you play well already, you wouldn't need a teacher!) Because I believe we need a good guide and bit of commitment when we want to improve something. Everything goes much smoother when both are present!
I’m flexible and open to discuss how we organise the lessons depending on your need! I hope to see you soon at a trial lesson!
