His study of vocal improvised music, at the Brabant Conservatory in the Netherlands, provided Wim Koevoets with a technical and theoretical foundation to start up his career as a performer. After graduating in 1991 he worked for several years in the music industry, building up experiences first as a performing artist and later as a teacher of both individuals and groups. These experiences continue to be the basis for communicating his ideas in an effective way to amateur singers and young professionals.
Wim’s central message is that singing can only be meaningful if a person sings with everything that’s within him, from the crown of his head to his toes, with his underbelly, his heart and his mind. For amateur singers, as well as for professionals, music is a wonderful way to enrich one’s life. In order for singing to be meaningful, students should not restrict themselves to technical and theoretical aspects. It is vital that they are equally open to discussions about their feelings, political or religious believes, memories and experiences, as these could be sources of creativity or inhibition in expressing oneself.
Throughout my carrier, it has become obvious that this approach is beneficial to individuals and groups as a source of giving meaning to one’s life journey. This is also applicable to those who believe they can’t sing.
