WELCOME

Welcome to the website of Arjan van Hees, musician. This is where you’ll find information on my work as an organist, conductor, and music teacher. Feel free to check out these pages! In addition, this address will provide a link to the website of music publishing house Voix Céleste. This publishing house has published some of my own compositions as well as compositions by Jan Zwart, Charles-Marie Widor, René Louis Becker, Harry Mayer, and a translation of ‘The Crucifixion’ by John Stainer, translated by Catharina Anna Plugge. Are you looking for an experienced music teacher? Head over to the subpage ‘teacher’ for more information. If you’d like to get in touch, please visit the ‘Contact’ page. I look forward to meeting you at one of my concerts!
CONDUCTOR - TEACHER Conductor: At seventeen, Arjan began conducting choirs. To further professionalise in this field and develop his talents even more, he decided to study choir conducting at a conservatory (music academy). During his studies, Arjan took an interest in and learned more about speech-language pathology. As a result, some of the main issues he pays attention to during choir practice are comprehensible speech, tonal purity, and an overarching, even choir sound. Arjan feels a conductor should possess significant knowledge of singing and vocal qualities. He himself was taught singing by Lodewijk Meeuwsen and José Lieshout. In June 2014, Arjan obtained his bachelor’s degree in choir conducting, and consequently earned a master’s degree in choir conducting at the Utrecht conservatory, having been taught by Rob Vermeulen. Teacher: At Arjan’s studio, you are welcome to take up lessons in organ and piano playing, but also in singing and conducting. Each student goes by his or her own learning speed, and so the lessons are adjusted accordingly. To Arjan, it is important that a student heads home feeling content, then continues his or her development at home and eventually returns for the next lesson well-prepared. All motivated students are welcome! As an organ teacher, Arjan was previously affiliated with music school Markant (Stichting Centrum voor Kunsteducatie) in Apeldoorn and with Quintus (Centrum voor Kunst en Kunsteducatie) in Kampen. For quite a while now, Arjan has been teaching music to motivated students at his own studio. A student’s starting level of skill is irrelevant – both beginning and advanced students are welcome!
