My Musical Journey

(October, 2016) I am married to Therese, and we have three adult children and five delightful grandchildren.

Originally from The Netherlands, my family relocated to Australia when I was 7 years old. My mother was an opera singer in Holland, and my father was a Radio Technician and Instrument Maker. Dad made his own radios and tape recorders, so there was always lots of music in our home. Most of my family loves music.

Growing up in Australia was very exciting and great fun. My career revolved around the hardware industry and retail, and I was a sales representative for many years in associated industries. Loving music, I got my daughter involved at an early age playing the organ, and she was very gifted. Unfortunately she no longer plays and has gone on to other interests.

Having recently retired, I noticed a Yamaha HS8 Electone for sale in a local thrift shop at a bargain price, so I thought to myself that I would take up playing for myself, and that it would be a great hobby in my retirement. That instrument developed a fault, and I decided to go on the Internet to see how far Yamaha keyboards had progressed. When I saw and heard the Tyros 4, I was just amazed at the sounds, styles and possibilities of the instrument and being able to sound like whole bands, orchestras and voices.

I absolutely love my new hobby, and am now composing some of my own music, which I find very rewarding (and my long-suffering lovely wife, Therese, gracefully endures my practice time). I play occasionally at the local Ex-Servicemen's Club, and have had several of my recordings played on the local radio station. My other passion has been an ongoing love of photography, having been fortunate enough to have travelled extensively (and hope to do more). Its really great to have all those images and memories. Having lived in Sydney for many years, we now live on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland - a very beautiful part of the world.
