Ruud van der Wel is geridderd!

Afgelopen vrijdag, 26 maart is onze Ruud van der Wel geridderd! Hij heeft niet zomaar een onderscheiding gekregen maar de hoogste die je als burger kunt krijgen. Hij is nu Officier in de Orde van Oranje-Nassau.

Natuurlijk zijn wij hier enorm trots op en vanzelfsprekend blijven wij ons inzetten om voor kinderen en volwassenen met een beperking zelfstandig te musiceren mogelijk te maken.

Magic Flute artist wins talent show “stealing the show”

Christian has stolen the show on saturday the fourteenth of January 2o17 with his Magic flute, in Paul de Leeuw’s show. He played “Holding back the years” by Simply Red. What a performance! Christian is one of our ambassadors at My Breath My Music and has been helping us for years at exhibitions and workshops as a volunteer.

Talented people who think they can steal the show, are being challenged to show their what they’re capable of in the VARA-show “Wie steelt mijn show” by Paul de Leeuw.

Online Improvisation workshop
Improvisation is a way to create your own unique music, here and now, without having to think too much. It’s also a great way to express yourself. If you use the right scales in Eye Play Music with the play-along tracks for improvisation, in no time you’ll create music which can be very pleasant to listen to.
First Select Penta C scale. Now go to workshop 1. On this page are two play-along tracks. Have lots of fun!
