Welcome to my personal website...
I'm a musician, educator and researcher. I am Associate Professor in Early Childhood Music Education at the University of Luxemburg. Previously I was affiliated to IPEM (Ghent University) as PhD student and postdoc, and to the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp as PhD student in the arts.
I devote my time to the development of [research & practice]-based innovative movement-based approaches to instrumental music teaching and learning (in Early Childhood).
The leitmotiv in my work is the integration of theoretical, empirical and practical research. Importantly, my research is constantly inspired by my experience as performer and teacher.
Next to my work as an academic, I am guest lecturer at the Music conservatoires of The Hague (NL).
I have recently been appointed Associate Professor in Early Childhood Music Education at the University of Luxemburg.
Together with dr. Lukas Pairon and dr. Ann de Bisschop, we worked hard on establishing an academic chair on music-making and social action (promotor: Prof.dr. Francis Maes). The chair was approved by Ghent University and will start in September 2022. Date of Inauguration: October 18th, 6PM
