If you are located in (Mill the Netherlands) do you help equestrians all over the world? Yes for EVERY LEVEL from every Country 

Tell us the process of putting a musical freestyle together?
First we talk about the choreography. Then we talk what instruments the costumers likes. Then we decide in which genre we are going to compose. Then we get a video delivered and we start composing.
First we make the entrance.
Send this tiny bit off music together with the video to the client.
If we receive the green light, we continue with the first minute.
We wait for the green light.
then the second, third and so on.

Do the customers pick the music or do you?
Both is possible. The costumers are the one that have to ride it so HE/SHE MUST LOVE IT!

What inspires you? OH so many things, It can be a musical a movie a song on the radio or just together with one of my composers….

You will be in the USA giving a clinic at Kim Herslow’s farm in NJ, September 25-26, 2021.

Tell us how the clinic will be run for 2 days with you and Linda Zang at Kim’s in NJ:
I’ll tell everybody the don’ts and the do’s about picking the right style and the right music.
And show also WHY this works and that doesn’t.
I will have some riders live in the arena and we will listen do several different music pieces on the same gaits….just to show the differences.
I will take every body with me in to our ”kitchen” we will have a live stream with one of my composers. And we can see REALY LIVE into one of our projects HOW we create those.
I will try to have a “mystery guests (rider) as speaker) also Live presentation online. So everybody can ask questions to him or her.
I will talk about a rule change that is coming up (about using music in the sport world)
The whole time Linda Zang will be there to tell what the Judge’s like and how to perform it the best way.
SO very much to talk about and the see and also to experience!
