For over a decade, I’ve worked for the biggest TV shows in various capacities – as a vocal coach, a judge and a creative consultant. The shows include Dutch Idol, X-Factor, Disney’s Camp Rock and High School Musical, Fox Kids Jetix, The Voice of Holland, The Voice Kids, The Next Boy/Girl band and the Latin-American version La Voz Kids. Getting the best result out of contestants in very short periods of time has taught me how to perfect my coaching method to get the most out of my students quickly.
Traveling internationally for The Voice Kids, La Voz Kids has given me an insight: music is a universal language that connects us all. For this reason I want to create ideas and projects that connect talent and continents. One of those projects is an educational platform I’ve developed for schools. I recognize the importance of musical education as a way to stimulate learning, instill confidence and bring young people closer together. My method, vision and approach is being implemented in schools in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and Los Angeles.
