Motivation

Why do you believe students should come to Codarts?

“Codarts offers a large number of music cultures, and cross-pollination is the ideal basis for the contemporary musician. This can be seen in the projects the students do, out of the box and completely of this time.”

What are you going to teach them?

“I will try to make the student his or her own teacher. Music is a life-long study, so it is vital to develop a vision for your own development.”

How are you going to do this?

“I will do so by continuously stimulating the student to search for answers themselves and to build a healthy self-critical attitude – aside from offering large amounts of material and assignments to go with that, of course.”
