About Jos

Harpsichordist

Jos discovered the harpsichord much later than the organ; he did not start playing the harpsichord until the age of eighteen. At the conservatory in Groningen - where he was studying organ - he started a bachelor harpsichord with Johan Hofmann in addition to his organ bachelor. In the summer of 2020 he succesfully completed this. At the moment Jos is studying harpsichord with Menno van Delft at the Conservatory of Amsterdam.

Duo Calyptura

Since 2019 Jos is playing together with saxophonist Marlon Valk Under the name 'Duo Calyptura'. In unique programmes they try to show the colours of their instruments. Expect warm sounds, energetic playing, and a fresh view on both old and comtemporary music.

Teacher

Besides making music Jos has another passion: teaching. Jos is available for teaching the organ, harpsichord and piano, both young and old, starting and more advanced players. The most important goal for Jos is that his students are having fun in making music. That will make them motivated to work hard. When a student has extra wishes Jos is always receptive for that. With one student he might go more into the literature, while with another student he might focus more on church-related playing instead. In every situation the goal will stay the same: to bring the student to a higher level, both technically and musically.
