Welcome to my personal website!

I'm a musician, educator and researcher, currently working as a postdoc at IPEM, a center of excellence in research on musical interaction (Ghent University, Belgium), and as PhD student in the Arts at Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp.

I devote my time to the development of [research & practice]-based innovative movement-based approaches to instrumental music teaching and learning.

The leitmotiv in my work is the integration of theoretical, empirical and practical research: 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) and Antwerp (BE).


My Creative Europe project "Resilience in Resonance" has been positively evaluated. (EAC/S53/2019 “Music Education and Learning”)

Due to COVID many lectures and presentations have been canceled and/or rescheduled
