Cellist Wouter 

I started to play the cello when I was 7 years old and the cello still challenges, amuses, irritates and makes me happy every day! I have more than 30 years experience in giving cello lessons to individuals, duo lessons and ensembles, both to adults and teenagers
I toured all over the world performing with well known ensembles as COMBATTIMENTO, LEUPOLD TRIO, HAYDN TRIO and the recently founded Mijnders - Broncano & Milon trio. I also gave several master classes in Buenos Aires, U.S, Colombia, Tunesia, Japan, and Europe. Enjoy a nice CAPPUCCINO or ESPRESSO while taking a lesson! I am initiator and owner of Vivaldi Music Lessons.
