The Co-Creative Classroom
In this workshop for teachers and musicteachers, you experience how to improve singing with children in a fun and creative way, using vocalpainting and other musical tools. The co-creative classroom concept is inspired by Jim Daus Hnjernøe and Peder Karlsson.
Teambuilding & Music
This is a workshop on demand. What about teambuilding by singing together or make a new piece with boomwackers. Face the monster and start expanding your comfortzone by doing, by acting. Mathieu always creates a fun, safe environment in which people show the very best of themselves.

Workshop Vocal Painting
What is Vocal Painting? In short: by using handsigns you can change existing music or music in the moment to ‘other places’. Click here to see me talk about Vocal Painting (Dutch).
Coaching from Mathieu
Mathieu already did many coachings ‘on demand’ for choirs. There are great possibilities. Mathieu will create a nice workflow, together with the conductor, or otherwise. Get some Kuchesa (sing, dance, play) in the room!
The Co-Creative Childrens Choir
In this workshop children choir conductors and music teachers experience how to improve singing with children in a fun and creative way, using vocal painting and other musical tools. The co-creative concept is inspired by Jim Daus Hnjernøe and Peder Karlsson. In the co-creative childrens choir we see children taking leadership in musical processes and lead the group while making music together. The quality of singing and making music improves in a remarkable way with some hands on tools.
Rhythmical Choir Conducting
As a rhythmical choir conductor I like many styles, pop, rock, latin. I arrange for choir in this styles. What makes my heart beat even faster are great vocal jazz arrangements from great arrangers such as Gene Puerlin, Kirby Shaw, Steve Zegree, Michele Weir, Darmon Meader and many others.
Jazzmatazz is a vocal jazz ensemble, which I started at Artez conservatory. We sing rhythmical vocal music, mainly vocal jazz, based on jazz standards and of course mixed with other styles.
Trending news! I am the brandnew conductor of vocal group Flevox. Very nice singers with a talent of creating a great musical athmosphere while performing.
In july I finished my master program at RAMA, Denmark. It is about Co-Creative Classrooms. My philosophy is, that now is the time to challenge children to make music in the moment themselves. I developed a program in which children can improve their musical skills and be more involved in the process of making music. Mainly vocal and with bodysounds, but much can be transferred to playing on instruments. Key is celebrating the musical process and learn from each other!
Here you see a few of my publications. It can be anything, from children songs to papers.
Gehrels 'Pyramide' Article
Here’s an article about vocal painting in educational settings I wrote for school music magazine ‘Pyramide’. It’s in Dutch.
Here’s a tongtwister I wrote. You can also listen to the song. Veerle is singing it!
Koningslied Willem Alexander (officiele video)
Here is a song I wrote (in Dutch) for the inauguration of our Dutch king. You can see the sheetmusic.
I consider myself a soloist in playing in the jazzband or improvising on my flugelhorn. My scat-singing is often related to improvising on this beautiful mellow instrument. Later I discovered singing in the jazzchoir was a great opportunity to be ‘equal’ as a singer in the group. Here I improved as a musician.
