Biography

Growing up in Thailand, Jasper came in contact with this beautiful instrument and immediately was hooked. After returning to the Netherlands when he was 9 years old, he never stopped practicing and taking lessons. This resulted in a very fast progression which caused him to have his first international tour through Europe and Scandinavia at the age of only 14.

While gaining experience as a guitar teacher, playing at his local church and in numerous coverbands/ choirs/ musicals/ acts, Jasper co-founded the metal band TerraDown after graduating high school. In 2019, TerraDown played at Wacken Open Air. Jasper, at the age of 20 can proudly call himself one of the youngest musicians who have played at Wacken, nearly the biggest metal festival on earth. TerraDown has given Jasper the most of his stage experience. While releasing an album in 2020, new EP’s has been recorded with TerraDown, Little Note and A Life Aligned, and are set for release very soon.

After two years of preliminary education, Jasper was accepted at the conservatory in Haarlem at which he graduated in 2021. During these years, Jasper has developed into a professional and varied musician in a lot of different styles and genres. His specialties in acoustic guitar and metal guitar have given him opportunities in numerous acts and bands. He is always busy recording, studying or performing to push the bar every day.

 

Why Jasper?

Music is something personal.

“I take music personally, so I treat my clients with a personal approach.
Based in the picturesque town of Heukelum, I have a beautiful studio where students and guitar enthousiasts can learn, play en record their precious instruments. Every student and every client needs a unique ‘something’ to fit their style and I want to seize every opportunity to give that ‘something’ to them.

Because of my coaching abilities and experience with working with people of all ages, my clients are always content and they can feel right at home. Whether you want to create a new song and you need some songwriting input, or you have everything perfectly figured out, I’m the one who can make it complete.”

What does Jasper offer?

Lessons

You can visit Jasper in Heukelum or in Veenendaal for personal guitar, bass guitar or ukelele lessons. Due to his study of pop and jazz music at the conservatory in Haarlem, all musical styles are possible.

While a wide range of musical genres are within Jaspers grasp, his personal favorite and therefore professional expertise lie within more heavier oriented genres. This is why Jasper is a perfectly specialised teacher or coach for the ambitious rocker and metalhead. Students of all skill levels are welcome!

Jasper can also help the students with an approach to christian music, because of his personal faith and experience in the worship genre.

Session guitarist

Jasper can be booked for a wide variety of shows and jobs. The two most unique selling points are the ones stated above. Jasper has a special skillset for heavy genres, that many pop guitarists lack.

Jasper is also bookable for christian events, stand-in jobs, recording sessions or solo shows.

Book one of his metalbands like TerraDown, A Life Aligned or 3 Days Wake. Or choose for a more friendly acoustic approach with Little Note.
