Rowy van Hest

Although my father was a music teacher, it was not until I was sixteen that I started to learn to play an instrument. When I was eighteen, I finished a concerto for strings. At the age of nineteen I was accepted to the Brabant's Conservatory of Music (The Netherlands, Europe) to study composition.

At first I wrote experimental music, but a few years after I had finished my study, I went back to my roots. Since then I have been writing neo-classical music with a touch of melancholy.

I've been a teacher for more than 25 years and I'm also a writer of educational works on music theory and composition.
