Singing for pleasure comes naturally but singing well is a profession.

Koorschool Delft offers a solid classical singing education with a modern approach, for children and adults. Koorschool Delft strives to achieve a high artistic level. Music theory and singing from sheet music go hand in hand with the development of each individual’s own voice. This approach helps the students in the choir to also develop musical independence. Koorschool Delft also provides custom-made on-site projects for primary schools, after school care centres and companies. For example, IKEA Delft has set up a workplace choir under the direction of Koorschool Delft. Koorschool Delft is an initiative of singing teacher Petra Weijers.

Piles of work

“I suppose you don’t have much to do anymore?” is a question I’ve been asked quite often in the last few months. Well, the opposite is true! Fortunately, I hasten to add. When the corona crisis began, I indeed imagined that I’d have loads of time for all that overdue...

Live in Engeland

This last summer I was in England. In a safe area of course, far away from cities and areas where the lockdown had been reinstated. Keeping a close eye on all the news reports and abiding by the rules, I dared to venture across. And I was very lucky indeed given that...
