Lennart is a Dutch pianist, currently living in Boulder, CO. He holds degrees in Piano Performance from the Amsterdam Conservatory (B.M. 2016), the University of Wyoming (M. M. 2018) and he just finished his degree in Collaborative Piano at the University of Colorado (M.M. 2020). Although his main education is classical, Lennart loves many styles of music. He is also an experienced vocal coach.
In his teaching, Lennart likes to combine his passion, technical training and analytical understanding of music, in order to explore a personal interpretation for each student. His love of music, dedication to his students and endless curiosity make him an inspiring and versatile teacher.
In his free time, Lennart likes hiking and climbing in the mountains, cooking for his friends and exploring all kinds of music. He is also currently training for an Ironman triathlon in the Summer of 2020.

I enjoy teaching people of all ages and levels from all over the world. Together we can explore the most amazing music. Helping my students to create their own musical identity is such an interesting process and I love to be a part of their musical journey.
His patience and motivation to learn me how to play the piano. And on top of that he's really a very nice guy.
He’s very patient. He can explain very well and if you have something specific you want to learn like a song he’ll have everything and more the next lesson for you to learn it. I loved my lessons with Lennart. I was always looking forward to go to my piano lessons.
As an older player I’ve had quite a few piano teachers over the years, but I can honestly say that I’ve made more progress with Lennart than with any other. From the first lesson it was apparent to me that Lennart has a gift for tailoring his piano lessons to whatever level you’re at, each one having a good balance between theory, technique, fun and inspiration. You’ll come a long way with this teacher!
Lennart always made me feel comfortable with my voice on good days and bad days. I appreciated his attention to expressive detail in whatever music we were working on, and he was able to adapt to all the different types of music I would throw at him (musical theater, art song, aria, jazz, pop, lieder, etc.)!
I usually like to schedule a try out lesson in which I can determine the learning style of the student. After I get a sense of this, we can discuss piano methods, repertoire and other learning goals.

By comunicating clearly with my students to determine the best teaching goals and the best teaching style that fits the student.
Mostly with kids and young adults (<21), but I have also had some students of 60+ years old.
I recently played my second Masters Recital at the University of Colorado in Boulder. It was a program featuring all German Romantic music, with some of my composers.
Look for someone who can offer you a broad and solid set of skills. Someone who has had both the experience of intense and serious musical training, and a lot of experience in performing. And on top of that it needs to be someone that you feel comfortable and inspired with.
- What are my goals? Why do I want to play music?
- Do I have a good instrument to practise on?
- Do I have time to practise regularly?
- Do I want to commit to a fun and rewarding, but sometimes difficult hobby?
