"Since 2015 children (age 6-14yrs) in Amsterdam are welcome to learn how to sing classical as well as modern music. Emma guides the children in making own songs, dancing, learning notes. She makes use of her experience in Collaborative Practice and Creative Music Making. This, she combines with her own classical music background and modern composition techniques. I personally like the way she manages to do everything very relaxed, also for us as parents."

"Being parents of a musically talented child is as much a joy as a responsibility. Having found Emma willing to teach our daughter of now 8 in her own very personal, joyous, gifted way, has made us able to respond to our daughter’s talent. 

In her lessons she combines improvisation with musical theory in a very personal way. She has great understanding of concentration’s time span and is a firm guard of joy in music. Emma is both a very fine musician and a great pedagogue."
