Writing: a blog, tutorials, courses
1988 - 1993: A series of percussion courses + a series of columns (sorry, only in Dutch) from 2000 until 2004 in Slagwerkkrant (Dutch drums + percussion magazine). Also various articles and columns about all aspects of the business in Jazz Nu, Slagwerkkrant and Music Mail.


New is the start of the periodical ‘De Rijks Voorlichtingsdienst’ with written observations and open letters to people who have the kind of effect on society that worries me somewhat (again, only in Dutch).


There is also Tips4musicians...
A series of the tweets that I have been posting, just to jog the (hobby) musicians mind.
