Drumlessen

Pims lessen richten zich op het opbouwen van een goede techniek en motoriek, maar ook op hoe het geleerde materiaal in de praktijk kan worden toegepast. Door de unieke verscheidenheid van vaardigheden en talenten (Pim is een music producer, sound engineer, songwriter/componist, en ook een multi-instrumentalist... ) heeft hij een fantastisch gevoel voor hoe drums en percussie zijn in te passen in een compositie, studio werk of live situatie.

Zijn muzikale achtergrond overbrugt een paar decenia, optreden, schrijven, produceren in Australia, Europa en Canada. Pim is een zeer gewilde sessie drummer en zijn drumwerk is alleen al in de afgelopen paar jaar te horen op meer dan 40 CD's van artiesten uit veel verschillende landen (USA, Australie, Canada, Nederland, Zuid Africa, Duitsland, Trinidad, Zwitserland enz.) en in een grote variatie van stijlen zoals pop, rock, jazz, heavy metal, folk en alternative (zie de Discografie).

Als Producer is zijn werk genomineerd voor belangrijke muziek awards in Canada, gebruikt in TV shows en is volop in rotatie op radio stations in Noord America, Nederland en op het net.

Wat kan Pim voor je doen?
Pim kan je aanbieden zijn unieke mix van vaardigheden en talenten, zijn creatieve ideeen, zijn ervaring, zijn openheid om samen te werken en ook het creëren van een comfortabele en productieve muzikale omgeving.
