About Vincent

Hobo is geweldig!

Als beginnend hoboist kan ik Vincent van harte aanbevelen als docent. Hij heeft plezier in het lesgeven en geeft zorgvuldige aanwijzingen en rietoefeningen om de embouchure onder de knie te krijgen. Hobo is een geweldig instrument en Vincent weet dat in zijn lessen op een leuke en stimulerende manier over te brengen. Ook is het fijn dat Vincent beschikbaar is voor lessen in de avonduren en mooie rieten maakt voor zijn leerlingen!

Steeds een stapje verder!

Ik kijk elke week uit naar mijn hoboles bij Vincent. Hij moedigt aan, is kritisch en brengt me elke keer een stapje verder met dit prachtige instrument. Hij maakt goede rieten en helpt me ze te onderhouden, zodat ik me kan concentreren op het spelen zelf.
