About Dionne

Dionne is a cellist who feels at home in different styles of music and ensembles. She plays in a pop string quartet, a classical clarinet trio and substitutes in several orchestras such as the Metropole Orkest, Noord Nederlands Orkest and Sinfonia Rotterdam. She finished her studies in Utrecht in Tilburg. She believes every student needs a personal and therefore different approach. Experience has tought her that people who are 'older' are generally more devoted and make progress quicker than they'd expected!

Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.' - Victor Hugo
